Exacta is a new multilingual sans-serif typeface, constructed in a geometric manner but instilled with a humanistic quality.
This type family of three weights (Light, Medium and Bold) plus matching italics was designed by Manuel Ramos in 2014.
Each character has been designed taking the maximum care in minimal details.
Font form in this type family is clean with the rate and style suitable for it to be easily legible, clean and pleasurable result in sight. The edges are rounded making it less stiff and more friendly. Have been applied concetps of symmetry and proportion sizes.
An extended character set support Central and Eastern European as well as Western European Languages. 217 characters including uppercase, lowercase, numbers, glyphs, and accents.
The idea for this completely new font design with overlapping characters came when Axel Stoltenberg, longtime IKARUS program developer at URW + +, visited a restaurant. As it can be seen quite often , the daily specials were offered handwritten with chalk on a blackboard applying a writing technique never been available before for digital fonts: each character is partly covered by its predecessor creating a three-dimensional effect. The implementation of this unusual notation for digital setting required a lot of programming and testing until all necessary character variants were produced and set properly always using the correct form. In order to achieve this, the OpenType Pro font ThreeDee contains about 12,400 characters and all the necessary OpenType features (GSUB ) for the automatic setting in OTF savvy application programs.
It took Hannes von Döhren and Livius Dietzel two years to develop and complete the Brix Sans family – the companion of the well-known Brix Slab. The approach was to design an independent type family following the rules of the “Sans-Serif” genre, harmonizing with its older sister Brix Slab from the “Slab-Serif” genre. The result is a family of 6 weights with matching italics, which works perfectly for corporate design & editorial design. Combined with Brix Slab, high and complex typographical challenges can be solved.
