About Archivo Font
Archivo Font is a grotesque sans serif typeface consisting of 6 families (Archivo, Condensed, Semi-Condensed, Extra-Condensed, Expanded, and Semi-Expanded). It was designed by Héctor Gatti from Omnibus-Type to be used simultaneously in print and digital platforms.
The technical and aesthetic characteristics of the font are both crafted for high-performance typography. It was originally designed for highlights and headlines. This family is reminiscent of the late 19th-century American typefaces. It includes single Black weight and Narrow styles and was derived from Chivo.
Archivo font family comes in a range of 6 widths: Normal, Semi-Condensed, Condensed, Extra-Condensed, Semi-Expanded, and Expanded, in order to cover a wide range of applications. Although the patterns at both ends of each set are made in their most conspicuous form in terms of both width and weight, they are not taken to such extremes as to become absurd, and are perfectly usable for display uses.
Archivo font strives to be a universal weapon not only because it works great in headlines and short and long versions but also because of its meticulous neutrality. It is armed with 108 weights in total. Each of the 9 weights with their corresponding italic characters of each width have approximately 641 glyphs. Also supports over 200 global languages.
Archivo contains some nuances that help with clarity and give it a harmonious look for both text and headlines. Perfect for large format prints, body copy, brand identities, social media, advertising, editorial design, posters, magazines, logos, titles, editing and signages, and works great for larger applications. Archivo is incredibly useful for almost any creative design.
