Background

Area hearkens back to the disco era, reminiscent of nightclub and record advertising. The rounded simple forms are updated with the implementation of negative kerning, which gives the typeface its unique look and modern feel. It is enhanced by the addition of over 50 ligatures that refine the final type treatment even further.
