The German designer Alexander Dosiehn created the font in 2001.
Alexander Dosiehn developed the Liga Sans type family as part of his graduate thesis at the Fachhochschule Düsseldorf in 2001. Liga Sans is a sans serif typeface that acts as a bridge between classical modern styles. Traces of pen forms and brush strokes can be seen mixed together with the most legible elements from grotesk-style faces in the alphabet’s letterforms. These features work together to create a style that works very in many sizes, including smaller ones! Liga Sans is an original, lively addition to the Linotype Library suitable for text, magazines, and corporate identity work. The family contains four weights in OpenType format: regular, bold, heavy, and black. Both old style and lining figures are featured.
