About this font family
Hope Sans™ takes the jaunty style of 1950s and 60s lettering and melds it with the jubilant 1970s swashes of Bookman. The result is a sans serif family that is lively, inviting and deeply customizable. Its basic sans serif forms create engaging text, while a roaring collection of swash designs, alternate characters and ligatures make it a natural for attention-grabbing display typography. More…
The middle weights of the family are easy on the eyes and shine at smaller sizes and in blocks of text copy. Their friendly vibe also translates well to web and interactive design projects. Spacing is open, counters are large and Hope Sans’ range of six weights can provide just the right design for virtually any need. Headlines, subheads, banners and navigational links are naturals for its lightest and boldest weights – either with, or without, the swash letters.
“Hope Sans is a paint box,” says its designer, Charles Nix. “In its basic form, it’s a sturdy grotesque, capable of setting text in a cool and relaxed way. But a bit of accenting with the alternate forms easily creates an entirely different mood and meaning. And for those that are willing to really mix with it, the variety of alternate characters can build truly unique typographic statements.”
