Urby’s sharp-edged character is complemented by Urby Soft’s rounded corners and together they make up the Urby Collection. Although each has their own look, both families and their five weights each can be used interchangeably.
The idea of Urby is to combine striking character with technical functionality. The tension between active, dynamic shapes and geometric construction make Urby a distinctive typeface for branding relating to sports, outdoor activities, energy or technology.
The different weights and styles share identical character widths, allowing you to change the weight or style of text without having to worry about text reflow — ideal for interface design. And despite being eye catching at display sizes, Urby works surprisingly well for short text.
Extremely wide apertures, like in a, e or s, and organic stroke endings (v, x) bring playfulness to Urby’s geometric construction and reduced shapes (t, f, 4) and quirky details underscore Urby’s unique character. Its rich character set supports most Latin languages and provides helpful dingbats and geometric shapes
