Metro Nova. A rediscovered classic with a new look With Metro® Nova type designer Toshi Omagari is presenting a revival of the classic font, Metro, designed in the 1920’s and 30’s by William Addison Dwiggins. The rediscovery of the original design thus shows a facet of the popular font, which has been largely unknown until now. Omagari has clearly expanded the Metro Nova environment in comparison with the original Metro. The new font is available in Thin to Extra Black in seven stroke widths, each with matching Italic. Omagari has also designed all the font styles in a narrower tracking condensed variant. Small caps and various figure sets with uppercase and mediaeval figures, intended for the table and proportional set complete the range of characters. Designers from the German-speaking regions ought also to be delighted to see that the majuscule ß has been included. Metro Nova has received the Certificate of Excellence in Type Design at the Type Directors Club of New York TDC2 competition in 2014.
