Default One-day sale but nearly gone: Vectora

Linotype is offering the Vectora family for $39 today, but 460 of the 499 units have already been sold.

Adrian Frutiger wanted to design a sans-serif font, which would be especially captivating because of its excellent readability in small font sizes – and this is exactly what he has achieved with Vectora. This clear, distinct typeface came about because the designer consciously allowed himself to be influenced by the American grotesque sans-serif of the early 20th century, which is characterised by rhythmic line spacing, large x-heights and close-fitting individual shapes.
The elegant Vectora font is, however, not just an excellent choice for large quantities of small size text. The eight font styles which fit harmoniously together make it useful for many purposes, including corporate and logo design and for general use in advertising and promotion.
