Monotype: Metro Nova

Rescued from obscurity by Doug Wilson, and restored by designer Toshi Omagari, Metro Nova distills the idiosyncrasies of Dwiggins’ Metro No. 1 into a new family that retains Metro’s inimitable sense of character, while still appealing to current design sensibilities. With seven regular weights, from thin to extra black, and six condensed weights, Metro Nova offers a contemporary take on a classic piece of design, updating the hand of Dwiggins’ for a new generation of designers.

iA designed and implemented Metro Nova’s microsite accompanying the font launch.
