ETNO
Intelligent type family with Nordic roots
ETNO type family consists of four different weights for maximum design flexibility.
Each written character can be designed from up to 6 glyph variations. The software like InDesign, using OpenType functions will recommend best glyph for each situation based from context among other letters.
User can design from different input types and by that expect different results.

Above is shown three input options for using ENTO typeface:
a)    Regular text input (without Opentype functions)
b)    Glyph input with Opentype functions (LIGA, CALT, etc)
c)    Manual glyph input based to meet specific needs
ETNO type family is characterized with strict geometrical structure and historical unified x-height among all diacritical marks as seem in 20's applied arts in Latvia.
ETNO typeface consists from more than three hundred glyphs in each of four weights.

ETNO font family is designed with traditional Latvian forms and sense and inspired from various applied art materials from beginning of 20th century, from national textile design and ancient Scandinavian rune writing.
ETNO type family is characterized with strict geometrical structure and historical unified x-height among all diacritical marks.
Last, but not the least, feature is usage of Opentype Contextual alternates. This function allows for software such as InDesign to write text using multiple glyphs for each character based on it's neighbors. Or, if user prefers, to select glyph manually from 2-6 alternatives, by doing that, achieve unique and more personal writing form.
To allow more flexible use of typeface, it's design is available in four different weights.
