Umbra from URW++

Today's font of choice is sans serif font Umbra from font shop URW++. Originally designed in 1935 by R. Hunter Middleton, this typeface is an adaptation of the uppercase set of his earlier Tempo Light. Described on YouWorkForThem, "Umbra refers to its shadow effect, in which the actual letter shape consists of negative space and is defined solely by its black dimensional shadow."

Umbra is available to purchase from YouWorkForThem, where you can take advantage of a 50 per cent discount on all formats until 31 Jan, 2014.
