Futura is one of the earliest forms of the geometric sans serif typeface. It was designed in the year 1922 by German designer Paul Renner. He named this font style very rightfully as Futura i.e. the font of the future. Various other subtypes of the font were developed before the actual production of the font had begun. It was only in the year 1936 that the Bauer foundry started producing this font commercially.
The best way to make a simple typeface look trendy without actually changing the characters drastically is to have oblique strokes. The Futura LT Extra Bold’s characters have been modified by giving them a slight oblique pattern.
Futura LT Extra Bold Oblique has the same 253 characters like the Futura Extra Bold. The addition of the oblique pattern adds a sense of style to the typeface. It is very effective for designing small logos and headlines.
