Background

In its characteristics Xtra Sans is a combination of modern grotesks and traditional calligraphy. Upright and compact letterforms generate a sturdy effect as in the early 20th century grotesks. On the contrary, dynamically formed inside forms give characters a fluent appearance, because they refer strongly to handwritten letters. As a result, Xtra Sans stand out in large size, but still remains highly legible in small and long text.
