Renner* was built from the ground up to work in the digital age. In designing Renner*, nothing about Paul Renner’s design for Futura was taken for granted. Letters were created to be the best possible iterations of themselves, while extreme precaution was taken to ensure that as a collective family, Renner* functions seamlessly. This has resulted in numerous notable differences between Renner* and Futura. Renner*’s weighting system is a bit different, to make it more inline with the typefaces of today. Renner* also has more balanced capital forms, for a better flow, especially at text sizes.
It does this while retaining the elegance that defines Futura. Changelog v2.0 Rebuilt from the ground up. Building Renner* was created using the free and open source font building application FontForge. To build it yourself you are going to need to download a copy of FontForge, which you can get from their website, or can be build using the github branch. Start by opening the files located in the “FontForge Files” directory in FontForge. In FontForge, unlink all references by selecting all (Ctrl-A) and pressing Ctrl-U.
