With its geometric angles and art-deco aesthetic, Futuracha has become one of the most popular free fonts (opens in new tab) used by designers all over the world. Created in 2012 by Athens-based creative team høly (opens in new tab), Futuracha is inspired by the pf futura book, with serifs based on Claude Garamond typefaces. And thanks to a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo (opens in new tab), Futuracha looks set to become accessible to everyone.
While it has become incredibly popular, there's always been one drawback with Futuracha: it was only available in .eps format. This meant that designers had to configure and position every single letter if they wanted to use it. The solution is Futuracha Pro, an OpenType version of the font that magically adjusts and readjusts as you write.
