Background

Angie Sans is a low contrast incised sans serif sharing some similarities with Optima by Hermann Zapf and Pascal by Jos� Mendoza, both created at the end of the 50�s. The later, feature an italic not published by the initial foundry who launched Pascal. Angie Sans follow same path with its italic based on Chancery forms from the Renaissance, narrower than the roman shapes.

With its capitals based on Roman proportions, lowercases featuring open counters, strong horizontals, Angie Sans is a legible typeface. The manual gesture is present in Angie Sans, which offer the plastic qualities such as warmth, craftmanship and humanity. Angie Sans is an Incised Garalde who works well for display as text settings. Available in 6 series, with matching italics, various set of figures, ligatures, Angie Sans will work well in design projects where delicate and human touch is required.
