Sansa

Sansa
Designed by Fred Smeijers

Background

Sansa, a sanserif family designed by Fred Smeijers, benefits from the liberties taken in recent sanserif design without overdoing them. Yet it is a design full of character and it has proven versatile across a wide range of design uses, from packaging design - to posters, from book typography - to forms. Originally designed by Smeijers for his own correspondence, the family has been released in 2002. Sansa has seen an update in 2006, bringing out a larger character set. It's current, second, update includes a new SemiCondensed width and complements the character set with additional figure sets and small caps.

The Sansa family consists of five weights of roman and italic designs: Light, Normal, SemiBold, Bold, and Black. The family covers a range of three widths: Normal, SemiCondensed, and Condensed. The Condensed variant includes an additional UltraBlack style, a powerful weight for display use. Sansa's character set comprises small caps; lining, oldstyle and small cap figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive scientific superiors and inferiors, numerators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols (in tabular and proportional widths); arrows; standard and discretionary ligatures; and a complete range of accents for all Western, Central and East European languages based on the Latin script.

Other counterparts of the Sansa family are: Sansa Soft and Sansa Slab.
