About Farro

Farro is humanist sans serif mixing calligraphy and modern influences. Its strokes slightly flare out at the end, almost like bellbottom jeans. This characteristic makes the font tone more conversational, casual and welcoming to the eye. It's common to see fonts like Farro used as marketing and signage for events and local businesses.

The letter details in Farro confirm this relaxed tone. Though Farro is Humanist Sans Serif, it has a modern-looking, single-story g to showcase its business-casual attitude.

Font Detail

  • Shallow, single-story “g”
  • The letter strokes are thicker, giving Farro a bold appearance
  • Four weights in regular
