Averta Standard was recreated as response to users who do not require the extensive features that Averta contains. Averta standard is a high quality type family at a price point designed to reach a wide range of TDF supporters.
Bringing together features from early European grotesques and American gothics, Kostas Bartokas’ (Greek: ‘αβέρτα’ – to act or speak openly, bluntly or without moderation, without hiding) Averta is a geometric sans serif family with a simplistic, yet appealing, personality. The purely geometric rounds, open apertures, and its low contrast strokes manage to express an unmoderated, straightforward tone resulting in a modernist, neutral and friendly typeface.
Averta Standard is intended for use in a vast variety of media. The central styles (Light through Bold) are drawn to perform at text sizes, while the extremes are spaced tighter to form more coherent headlines. The dynamism of the true italics adds a complementary touch to the whole family and provides extra versatility, making Averta Standard an excellent tool for a range of uses, from signage to branding and editorial design.
Averta Standard includes alternate glyphs, case sensitive forms and contextual alternates, in eight weights with matching italics and supports over two hundred languages with an extended Latin, Greek and Vietnamese character set.
