Binario

Binario is a sans serif & geometric typeface with tightly cornered forms that lend themselves nicely to screen-reading. The design contains elements of Italian Art Deco, early 1900s advertising, and modularity. The rounded counters are based on the curve of the classic Roman arch. It comes in three weights; bold, regular, and light. The bold and regular weights have a vertical emphasis and are well-suited for headlines or large body text. The light is more open and provides a nice pairing to the bold or regular as body text or as large display text. It comes with a small set of symbols; an arrow, a printer’s fist, a train, some flowers, and several basic interface symbols.
