Alvar, a modular Humanist-flavored Sans Serif typeface, is ideal for corporate use, and brand and corporate identity design. The font performs well for mid-length text. Alvar is a neutral and clean font but it has friendly and modern design characteristics.

Alvar comes in 8 weights with matching italics and the whole family is composed of 3 subfamilies: Pro, Essential and Alt Essential, resulting in a total of 48 different styles. The Pro version includes a Latin Extended character set and OpenType features—stylistic alternates, small caps, case-sensitive forms, proportional and tabular figures, currency symbols, etc. The Essential and Alt Essential versions are well-suited for both web and corporate use.

Thank you for inspiration Alvar Aalto!

Special thanks to Alfonso García for his help with digital editing—especially for his contribution to the design of the beautiful italics.
