About Posterama

Posterama™ is a modular series of geometric sans serif families, inspired by events, movements and typography of the 20th century. The original design had notes of Futura and Gill Sans, with a softness reminiscent of letterpress, phototype and other forms of printing. Corners are manually rounded to achieve this effect.

Posterama™ is the ultimate retro-futurist type kit; a typographic time machine reflecting a monumental century of growth. A typeface out of time and into the future. Posterama™ provides a wide palette that encourages typographic play. It has the familiar charm of iconic 20th century design, and can transform seamlessly to accommodate different moods and themes.
