Although there was no direct association, Renner’s Futura font was indeed based on the simple forms of circle, triangle and square. Futura is a geometrically constructed typeface which reflects the ideas of the Bauhaus and the éNew Typography’.
Over time, Renner made some changes to make Futura font more legible. It has long ascenders and descenders and therefore requires generous line spacing. Its image is clear, elegant, and timelessly modern, embodying neutrality and objectivity.
The font Futura combines well with:
almost all serif fonts Old Face and Transitional forms, like Stempel Schneidler®. Didot slab serif fonts like Memphis™.
Script and brush fonts like Grace™, Sho™, Ruling Script™.
Black letters like Old English, Clairvaux™.
Fun fonts like Grafilone™, Animalia™, Araby Rafique™.
