What is Leutner?
Named after the dining hall that Aaron would sneak into while attending art school, Leutner is an eyeball-grabbing, hypnotic and sturdy geometric font inspired by the late 20th century (while still maintaining its own unique personality).
It's also a four typeface, layered type system. So you can create eye-catching typography in seconds.
What's a Layered Type System
A layered type system like Leutner takes all of the hassles out of building great looking type work.
Let's say you wanted to create some custom 3D type with your run-of-the-mill font. You'd have to manually build of the 3D elements, add fill layers, and then tweak each layer to try to get it all lined up and looking good.
With a font like Leutner the process is effortless (but still gives you tons of control to tweak it how you like).
All you have to do is type your words, choose a color, copy and paste the font on top of itself, and then choose your next layer (Main, Fill, Base or 3D). By mixing and matching font styles and colors you can build amazing looking type work in seconds.
