Aspira: the legible geometric typeface.

A multi-purpose typeface, it is suitable for both text and display use — for graphic design, corporate identity design, magazines, newspapers, books, reports, advertising, signage, etc.

Aspira is also a versatile typeface. It offers 112 styles, 8 weights, and 7 widths - much more than what is usual. It offers 56 upright fonts and 56 italic fonts. It offers lining and oldstyle figures (proportional and tabular). It offers small caps, ligatures, arbitrary fractions, and extensive language support. Aspira is a toolkit for any typographic challenge.

Aspira is a geometric typeface. It offers a fresh geometric personality which is pleasant and not too conspicuous. It is a legible typeface. Many of its details, like its open apertures and subtle variations in stroke width, are designed to enhance its legibility.

Aspira introduces an innovative width indication system: XXXNar, XXNar, XNar, Nar, [Normal Width], Wide, XWide. For more information about Aspira, see the PDF Specimen Manual.
