Background

Remo’s sans serif design is both serious and playful. The effect is achieved by an astonishing combination of qualities drawn from grotesques of the nineteenth century, and geometric and humanistic sans serifs of the twentieth. The combination comes close to defining a new class of sans serif typefaces. Remo’s basic framework is undoubtedly the circle and the square. This provides precision and a very satisfying articulation of form across the glyph set, enhanced by oblique endings (c, e, s) and low contrast throughout. But the geometry is then softened by finely shaped curves and a few strategically turned out strokes (a, d, l). The result is a typeface of warmth and good humour, with italics that are nothing less than sunny and delightful. Thoughtful shifts in proportion (B, R, P), a rolly S and a raised-apex M bring an echo of French and Italian mid-century modern, and complete the effect.
