Binario is a geometric and grotesque sans serif typeface. It was designed to offer a warm yet concise personality. Its simple, compact,and tightly cornered forms lend themselves nicely to screen-reading. The base of the design was inspired by elements of Italian Art Deco and early 1900s advertising and store signage. Binario to pays homage to early modernism’s optimism, modularity, and efficiency. The shape of the rounded counters are based on the curve of the classic Roman arch. The bold has a vertical emphasis and is well-suited for headlines or large body text. The light is more open and provides a nice pairing to the bold as body text or as large display text. It comes with a small set of icons; an arrow, a printer’s fist, a train, some flowers, and several simple interface symbols.

Binario is available for purchase from Font Spring and You Work for Them.
