Versa, designed by Peter Verheul, is with Arnhem, Fresco and Sansa, the fourth large font family from OurType. The character of Versa can be best described by thinking of Hermann Zapf's Optima, then think of Albertus, the type design by Berthold Wolpe. Then, try to think of a third design that would complete or continue this line of humane, charming, but also strong and personally flavoured type designs. Looking closely at Versa there is no doubt that it is a good candidate to make this line complete. But of course, there is more to Versa than this.
Like Fresco, the Versa family brings two big families together - a serifed version alongside a real sanserif version. Each of these consists of five weights: Light, Normal, Semi-Bold, Bold and Black. Each weight has a roman, italic and matching small capitals. This goes for the serif as well as the sanserif versions.
All Versa fonts have condensed versions: roman, italic, and small capitals. This turns Versa into a super-family, which is extremely suitable for texts in small sizes. At the same time, Versa will perform very well in large sizes, due its particular but charming character.
Versa supports 112 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
