Terrestrial Design presents the Biome™ typeface family, a retro-futuristic, soft superelliptical display sans-serif design.
Biome is designed by Carl Crossgrove, a San Francisco-based type designer.
Biome won Certificate of Typographic Excellence in the Type Directors Club 2009 type design competition under its previous, working name of Nebulon.
Biome follows the 2007 release of Beorcana, Crossgrove's calligraphic sans-serif superfamily (a 2007 TDC award winner and Judge's Choice).
Influenced by everything from Danish furniture to automobile styling, Biome is the distillation of figure-ground explorations
and an interplay between the organic and the futuristic. Biome is available in seven weights with matching oblique italics.
Biome includes alternate shapes, various figure styles, and broad European language support.
OpenType-enabled applications provide access to features such as conventional or futuristic alternates, small caps and a unicase set.

Biome is available as single fonts, 4-weight packages, or as a full family bundle of 14 styles.
Biome fonts can be licensed from www.fonts.com and itcfonts.com. Other resellers will carry Biome fonts in the near future.
