AVENIR & MINION Although Avenir owes some of its interpretation to Futura (‘avenir’ translates as ‘future’ in French, after all), the typeface is not purely geometric; it has vertical strokes that are thicker than the horizontals, and shortened ascenders. This enables Avenir to work for both display and body copy, and to nestle very comfortably alongside old-style serif fonts such as Minion.
