Heading Pro is a typeface family designed by Francesco Canovaro for Zetafonts.
The original design has been expanded and developed by the Zetafonts Team (Andrea Tartarelli, Cosimo Lorenzo Pancini, Chiara Ghezzi) in a full type system of
Built around 8 different widths from ultra-compressed to ultra-wide and nine weights from thin to black, Heading Pro provides a wide spectrum of sans serif type solutions to your design problems. Born as a space optimizing typeface for headers and titles, Heading Pro can be used in its ultra compressed, compressed and normal widths to optimize space on the printed page and on the screen. In these widths Heading Pro excels in titles and subheadings, timetables, name and credit lists and cases of exuberant and excessive copywriting.
Heading Wide and Heading Ultra-Wide are extended width variants that have been added to the original family to be used for titling where style and raw energy matter more than pixel or paper economy. Still keeping the original design of Heading, with a (post) modernist attention to readability and detail, the wide sizes allow you to write strong headlines and play with sub-headings and short text blocks.
Accompanying italics can provide you with versatility in text use as well as a viable display alternate for bolder weights, with a strong sport/energy feel.
But Heading family is not only made for extreme widths: the original condensed family has been complemented with a range of three medium width variants: Heading Medium, Heading Double and Heading Treble. When you need to pair the extreme display widths with some medium-proportioned text, these three widths allow you to design text block with a fine grain control on appearance and a wide array of open type features.
Each Heading Pro typeface includes over 800 characters with coverage for 100+ languages using Latin, Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. A full array of open-type features is included in each weight including stylistic alternates, small caps, old-style and tabular numerals and positional figures.
