Ano was designed by Gareth Hague and published by Alias. Ano contains 54 styles and family package options.  

A typeface designed for Another Man magazine.

A simple geometric, monoline framework allowed for a stylistic consistency over three variations. Regular - a 'standard' alphabet; Upper Lower - where upper case characters are replaced with oversized lower case; Wide - where upper case characters are the width of a square, and lower case the same style half the width of a square. Each style drawn in italic and back-italic versions. The resulting nine variations in six weights made 54 fonts in total.

For weights Regular through to Eighth the character weights divide in half. So the Half weight is half that of Regular, Quarter weight is quarter that of Regular and so on. This means for example that when Ano Half is set at twice the size of Ano Regular the weight of line is the same between the different character sizes. This proportion was used whenever typefaces were used in combination, so that headline and standfirst typography always had a consistent weight of line.

The different styles and mathematically defined weights allowed for a variety of layout options. For example by using different sizes and mixing up upper and lower case letters in Upper Lower, and by stacking letters into block shaped words in Wide.

The two bolder weights were drawn without this mathematical weight increase, as doubling the Regular weight would have filled in its counters and look clumsy. These Bold and Black weights allowed for a different and separate set of ideas for headline and impact typography and was a good balance against the stick-like constructions of the lighter weights. Black weights allowed for a different and separate set of ideas for headline and impact typography and was a good balance against the stick-like constructions of the lighter weights.
