Gentona by Rene Bieder

Today's font of choice is Gentona (opens in new tab) by senior designer and art director Rene Bieder (opens in new tab). "Designed for a wide range of applications, Gentona was intended to support the goals of contemporary design paired with a mostly Swiss oriented demand on typography – neutrality," Bieder explains.

"The result is a nine-weight neo-grotesque family ranging from sharp and fine thin cuts to muscle-bound and strong heavy weights. Gentona's confident and open shapes support legibility especially in small sizes while its alternative shapes and letterforms create flexibility. A wide range of typographic features like ligatures, alternative glyphs or fractions round up the whole family."

The Gentona download comes complete with 18 different fonts, currently available at the introductory price of $50 until 24th August 2013. So, what are you waiting for? Download Gentona he (opens in new tab)re (opens in new tab).
