The "Geometry Pro" family has been designed to be the final word in purely geometric fonts, and this rounded "Soft" sub-family is the ultimate web 2.0 style font collection.
Even though it is strictly geometric (as drawn with a compass and a ruler fixed to 90 and 45 degree angles) it is not slavishly modular: letters have differing widths, and the sidebearings, spacing and kerning has been finely adjusted to create smooth text.
The Soft family contains three weights each with 6 variants:
- A is the basic form and the starting point
- B has more dynamic and modern shapes
- C has open and swirly shapes
- N is a free notched variant (Bold only)
- X is the serious text version
- Y has a very horizontal look
- Z is a collection of all the remaining more funky shapes
Mix and match to your heart's desire!
Geometry Soft Pro Complete is a professionally reworked font that contains an extended character set for setting text in 65 languages requiring more than the basic A-Z!

"office" or "home" use
|TrueType is the format invented by Apple and Microsoft for their operating systems, so for everyday use this is the format of choice.
Select if you primarily work in Microsoft Office programs like Word, PowerPoint, Excel - or similar.
"graphic design" use
|OpenType is the new format made by Adobe and Microsoft - it is based on TrueType technology, but contains Postscript outlines.
Select if you primarily work in graphic design programs like Adobe CSs InDesign, PhotoShop or Illustrator - or Quark7.
(and not supplied ;)
|The original font format, but not very easy to work with when using foreign languages - because it does not support Unicode text encoding.
Use newer programs and OpenType instead.
