Aperçu was started in December 2009, and has been trialled and tested through a number of design comissions taken on by The Entente through 2010. The conceit behind Aperçu was to create a synopsis or amalgamation of classic realist typefaces: Johnston, Gill Sans, Neuzeit & Franklin Gothic.
Since its release in August 2010, Aperçu quickly found its position in the market, being used across a variety of different media and sectors around the world in both print and web. It has been utilized by institutions such as MOMA, De Wiels, Zeit Magazine and the Walker Art Center.
It seemed a fitting point to look at extending its support for Central Eastern European and Cyrillic-based languages. Now with more than 530 characters per weight, Aperçu Pro arrives.
Furthermore, bringing us to the present day, we extended Aperçu to included the heavier weights of Black, Black Italic and Mono Bold, allowing for a further graphic use at the extremities of the type family.
