Martin led the Tour de France Féminin into Paris, marking the first and last time an American would stand on the top step of the podium. Unfortunately, the Tour de France Féminin was greatly overshadowed by the Olympic Games that took place in Los Angeles that summer, missing the historical enormity of what Martin and her team had accomplished.

It was only in the 2012 in London that the Olympics had an equal number of cycling events for men and women. In the 2012 road race, Marianne Vos of the Netherlands won the gold, Elizabeth Deignan of Great Britain took the silver, and Olga Zabelinskaya of Russia won the bronze.

The Backstory

Aneto

A polymath from revered pedigree: aesthetically captivating and applicable to all editorial formats.

As one of the most widely applicable creations from José Scaglione and Veronika Burian, the Aneto and Aneto Text font families are long-awaited editorial polymaths, able to quell the territory of thought and page design with a peaceful force. This memorable serif results in flawless screen rendering, warm print production, and smooth readability.

Because of its myriad intended uses, the three pillars of the Aneto family took over three years to complete. Aneto and Aneto text were created to set an entire digital magazine, book, or newspaper. Aneto escorts the reader through the page’s structure of midrange headings, callouts, and subheads. Aneto Text carries the weight of the page, from the thesis of each paragraph to the smallest of captions and honorific colophon.

Displaying lessons learned from several hundred years of pedigree, the Aneto family has a taller x-height and enlarged counters for better readability, but shortened ascenders and descenders to pack in more letters per line. Aneto Text and Aneto are two families built upon the same skeleton and distinguished by their letter contrast to guide their appropriate use. The variable font versions reinforce correct usage with their two axes: character weight and optical size.

Exquisite page design used to be accomplished with as little as four styles, and, though rare, a single style in expert hands has sufficed. But both Aneto and Aneto Text are decked out with five upright and five italic styles (Regular to Black) for a total of 20. The lower contrast, hardy shapes, and archetypical familiarity of Aneto Text sets a solid foundation for any design. Comparatively, Aneto doesn’t fade away, it makes a sharp statement — an intentional interjection to guide the reader to the next starting point or next important phrase. It accomplishes this by measured shape differences such as the wedged oblique connection on the ‘R’ or internal curve of the lowercase ‘f’. And the italic shapes of both families maintain balance between optical sturdiness and brush calligraphy-inspired serifs.

The two main typographic design problems begging to be solved are reducing file size and adding style options. So Aneto and Aneto Text optionally group all 20 static styles into just two variable fonts, using only a fraction of the space. The future is variable and TypeTogether has been producing variable fonts since 2017.

The entire Aneto family is the third within a trilogy, with Catalpa being the first and Belarius the second. Each of the three have a distinct purpose and their own look, but they serve a common goal as a combinatory suite covering an editorial’s wide array of needs. Seen as a piece of textual architecture such as a mansion, Catalpa is the oversized, impressive, and illuminated profile; Belarius is the primary material undergirding the structure; and Aneto, with its three subfamilies, governs everything from the flow and use of space to the details seen within this mansion. It’s a rare thing to have one font family that can do it all, and Aneto is a type family of depth, utility, and consequence.
