It was in the year 1922 that designers had begun using geometric principles in designing font styles. A German designer, Jacob Erbar, was the first to produce a geometric sans serif font style. Futura too is a geometric type font style.
The alphabets are evenly spaced and receive strokes of equal weight. An essential element of Futura fonts and its sub types is that the lower case alphabets are taller than their upper case counterparts. This gives Futura its own unique character.
The Futura LT Condensed Extra Bold retains the basic principle of traditional Futura fonts. The characters are boxy and look very thick. The extra bold characteristic adds to the power of this font. The typeface has 261 characters including alphabets, numbers and symbols. It is ideal for short titles, headlines and logos with small words. If you want a tough looking design than this is the font style for you.
