Aperçu Condensed has been drawn as a partner to Aperçu, and is available in four weights Light through Bold with matching Italics. This version enables the type-user to truly capitalise on the type size in areas where space is at premium such as packaging backs, small print or in editorial settings in larger titling.
Aperçu was started in December 2009, and was trialled & tested throughout a number of design commissions into 2010. The conceit behind Aperçu was to create a synopsis or amalgamation of classic realist typefaces: Johnston, Gill Sans, Neuzeit & Franklin Gothic. Becoming, a sum of parts, building upon its initial reference points to create an extensive and usable family.
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 across a multitude of touchpoints. Utilised by leading visual institutions such as MOMA, De Wiels, Zeit Magazine and the Walker Art Centre amongst many others.
Between its release in 2010 and the present day, numerous extensions into further weights, extended language supports and enhanced OpenType features allow for dynamic control across a wide range of outputs.
