Circle typefaces are reminiscent of European design from the 1920s, like Herbert Bayer’s letterforms from the Bauhaus. But they have never diminished in popularity; just look at ITC Avant Garde Gothic™, from the early 1970s, or Avenir™, from the late 1980s. Typefaces in this category often have their elements boiled down to two simple forms: circles or other rounded forms, and straight lines. Quite a contrast! Use them to represent sleek movement, dynamism, or the future.

Square typefaces are stately. Forms like those seen in Morris Sans™ may often be found on official monuments or on sci-fi movie posters. Other square types look more like the techno-era Linotype Killer™. These faces are perfect for the party scene or the computer screen.

Oval typefaces tend to have more extreme proportions. Either their letterforms are very narrow or very wide, like an oval standing tall or laying on its side. These two extremes can be seen in Seebad™, which is coolly condensed, and Vienna Extended™, whose name says almost all you need to know.
Triangle typefaces are the rarest of the geometric breed. Since triangular forms do not appear often in our alphabet, these faces are purely decorative. Nevertheless, they convey geometry pure!
