Aero takes inspiration from Roger Excoffon’s landmark design Antique Olive, particularly the heavy ‘Nord’ weight. Instead of revisiting the original, Aero was drawn from memories of Antique Olive: its high-waist and reversed contrast. The result is a contemporary reflection of a 60’s-era classic, with the volume turned up and a wider range of weights: from hairline Fine to ultrablack Super.
Aero was designed by Chester Jenkins and Jeremy Mickel
