Sansa, a sans serif family designed by Fred Smeijers, benefits from the liberties taken in recent sans serif design without overdoing them, yet it is full of character. The family has five weights: light, normal, semi-bold, bold and black with matching italics. For down-to-earth display setting Smeijers developed Sansa Condensed Ultra Black with a matching italic. As a non-bookish typeface - no small caps or non-lining figures – Sansa is very effective for a wide range of daily uses.
In March 2006 OurType released the 'Soft' version of the Sansa family. This kind of treatment – rounding off the edges of sanserif typefaces – is very old and goes back to the 1830s, when the explosion of typographical sans serifs started. Usually applied upon sanserif or slab serif typefaces, this rather simple but effective cosmetic treatment has been with us since then. This fate could not be denied to Sansa and, like most simple things – Sansa Soft works!
In December 2006 OurType launched the latest addition to the Sansa family – Sansa Slab.

While TrueType and PostScript formats are still available, we recommend the newer OpenType fonts to most customers as they offer the most versatility and ease-of-use, as well as compatibility with modern design applications. The OpenType Pro fonts support the complete Latin Extended 1 character set, which is a valuable tool for composing multilingual text.
