Designed by Max Phillips, Center is a sans serif font family. This typeface has eighteen styles and was published by Signal Type Foundry.
The future is squarish. Georg Trump knew it in 1930 when he designed City. Hermann Zapf knew it in 1952 when he designed Melior. Aldo Novarese knew it in 1962 when he designed Eurostile. Center isn’t about to argue. Based on a rounded rectangle, its geometry has been subtly refined for smoother reading. Its branches are angled in homage to OCR-A. Its terminals are gently softened. A combination of open counters, unequivocal curves, and ruler-straight vertical and horizontal strokes suit it admirably for onscreen display. This redrawn and expanded version of the best-selling text/display family now boasts nine weights, ranging from the taut, elegant Thin to the massive Ultra, each with a matching italic. Rounding of terminals is subtler in this new release, and forms have been optimised for use in longer texts. Tabular figures duplex across all weights, case-sensitive forms keep punctuation in line, and a full range of diacritics provides support for over 130 languages. And, of course, it gets on well with its sharp-edged sibling, Sinter.
