Extended information

Economica is the first digital typeface created in Montevideo, Uruguay, to be distributed internationally. The development of the typeface took most of 2006 and received the assistance of type design colleagues from all over Latin America.

Economica has four basic styles: Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic. It includes a comprehensive character set that lets you work with diverse European languages.

This typeface family was designed for the output of inkjet printers. It was inspired by the concept of saving space in publishing texts without loss of height. This means it is a very condensed type.

The visual advantage of Econ—omica is that accomplishes this horizontal compression while keeping a strong personality. It is not a typical, neutral, sans serif. The open forms and tendency towards flattened curves allow it to be used in very small spaces while retaining high legibility.

Basic Font Information

Economica is the first digital typeface created in
Montevideo, Uruguay, to be distributed internationally.
The development of the typeface took most of 2007 and
received the assistance of type design colleagues
from all over Latin America.

Economica has four basic styles: Regular, Bold, Italic
and Bold Italic. It includes a comprehensive character
set that lets you work with diverse European languages.

This typeface family was designed for the output of
inkjet printers. It was inspired by the concept of
saving space in publishing texts without loss of height.
This means it is a very condensed type.

The visual advantage of Econ—omica is that accomplishes
this horizontal compression while keeping a strong
personality. It is not a typical, neutral, sans serif.
The open forms and tendency towards flattened curves
allow it to be used in very small spaces while retaining
high legibility.

Economica is a Unicode typeface family that supports languages
that use the Latin script and its variants, and could be
expanded to support other scripts.

More specifically, this release supports the following
Unicode ranges: Latin-1
