PF Centro Sans

European Design Awards 2008Cyrillic Type Competition 2009

Awards

Centro Sans is an award-winning typeface. It is part of a major type system which includes serif and slab superfamilies. This is an almost ‘invisible’ typeface with distinct personality which stands out at larger sizes. It does not attract any unnecessary attention at small sizes but it still gives you the essence of a very clean, expressive, legible and modern typeface appropriate for a wide range of design works. This is a rare case of a contemporary type family working across three alphabets. Centro Sans has become very popular among print and digital media and is an ideal choice for newspapers, magazines and corporate applications. It received a Gold Award from the European Design Awards 2008 and an Excellence Award from the International Type Design Competition 2009 as part of the Centro type system. This large superfamily consists of 16 fonts each with 1578 glyphs, it includes true italics and supports Latin, Greek and Cyrillic. Furthermore every font in this series has been completed with 270 copyright-free symbols, some of which have been proposed by several international organizations for packaging, public areas, environment, transportation, computers, fabric care and urban life. The new version offers enhanced character support including among others the German capital sharp S (Eszett), the Russian Ruble symbol and the Ukrainian Hryvnia symbol, which are part of the new Unicode standard.
