A a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Paul Renner in 1927. “Futura” is a registered trademark of BaurTypes.
The first drawings for Futura were done in 1924. The typeface was finally released in 1927 in light (Mager), regular (Halbfett), and bold (Fett) weights. The family was expanded in 1930 to include a semi-bold weight, a bold condensed weight, as well as oblique versions for the light and regular (medium) weights. A book weight was added in 1932. Subsequently, the family was expanded by designers other than Renner to over twenty faces of varying weights and widths.
