Novecento sans is a Caps + small-caps font family inspired on European typographic tendencies between the second half of 19th century and first half of the 20th. It looks rational and geometric. However, it is optically corrected and balanced. This font face is designed to be used mostly for headlines, visual identities or short sentences, both in big and small sizes.

The static version of Novecento sans is very versatile: lighter faces provide a more contemporary and design, while the bolder ones definitely look retro. Novecento family was spaced and kerned with love and patience; each font has between 700 and 1050 kerning pairs. This font is available for licensing in opentype and webfont format, as well as for mobile apps, ebooks and for software embedding.

For the animated version, the bold wide variant has been given some smooth faux 3D transitions. By offsetting the timing of the individual elements, the type gets more playful. With offset value at zero, you'll get solid 3D looking glyphs that rotate and wobble in place. A different out animation allows you to make the type disappear is gracefully as it appears.

Design: Jan Tonelatto
