Greta Sans Extended In Use

Design Concept

Greta Sans is a powerful toolbox capable of dealing with the most complex typographical situations. It is a timeless humanist sans with clear and open letterforms that are highly legible, yet also graphically distinctive to easily emphasise your message in the crowded landscape. Greta Sans comes in ten weights which, combined with its four widths (Compressed, Condensed, Normal and Expanded), create a tremendous range of possibilities. Read more about the development of Greta Sans in this article.

Greta Sans, design concept

Continuous Optical sizes

Greta Sans is designed as a continuous optical size system. While the basic text styles (Regular) are spaced and optimised more loosely for use at small sizes, the surrounding extremes (Hairline, Black) are designed to be used as display types, and are therefore spaced and kerned tightly. The resulting spectrum then runs continuously from Display to Text to Display use. The chart shows the minimal recommended point size for each style of Greta Sans.

Numeral styles

Each weight of Greta Sans Extended includes nine different kinds of numerals. Proportional lining figures come as default figures in Greta Sans. It also, however, includes old-style figures, tabular numerals (both lining and old-style), small caps numerals, superior, inferior, circled and circled inverted numerals. For the running text, old-style figures work best; for capital setting, use lining figures; and for small caps, choose the specially designed Small Caps numerals applicable via OpenType layout features. When you take a licence for this font you can choose the default numeral variants inside the fonts.

Greta Symbols

Greta Symbol is a separate font that extends the Greta Sans family with a unique collection of thousands of useful symbols and alphanumerical characters available as icon fonts, assembling a collection that covers over 1,200 symbols per style. Most of the symbols come in a range of ten weights, an unprecedented example of the application of typeface family conventions to a symbol font. This comprehensive family of fonts includes arrows, pictograms, alphanumeric symbols, weather symbols, chess figurines, geometrical shapes, zodiac signs in various styles and many other surprising symbols.

International Typography

Greta Sans is part of the Typotheque Multiscript font collection, supporting at least nine different writing scripts, and over four billion people worldwide. Typotheque Multiscript are fonts that cover Arabic, Armenian, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Georgian, Greek, Hebrew, Latin and Thai. Additionally, Greta Sans also supports Hangul, the writing script of Korean.

    All Small Capitals

    smcp, c2sc

    There are two methods of applying small capitals. The first one replaces only lower case letters with small caps. The second method, All Small Caps, also replaces capital letters with small caps. It also replaces regular quotation marks, exclamation points, question marks, slashes and usually also numerals with small caps variants.

    Case Sensitive Forms

    case

    When the ‘change to caps’ function is applied from within an application (not when text is typed in caps) appropriate case-sensitive forms are automatically applied. Regular brackets, parenthesis, dashes and hyphens are replaced with their capital forms.
  • fi
    fi

    Standard Ligatures

    liga

    Standard ligatures are those which are designed to improve the readability of certain letter pairs. For example, when this feature is activated, typing ‘f’ and ‘i’ will automatically produce the ‘fi’ ligature. Using ligatures does not affect the spelling and hyphenation of your text in any way.

    Proportional Old-style Figures

    onum, pnum

    Typotheque fonts contain various styles of numerals within one font. Proportional Lining Figures come standard in all our headline and newspaper fonts. Their proportions are specifically designed to work well with capital letters (for example, in headlines). The proportional Old-style Figures feature changes standard figures to Old-style Figures which work well in running text, as they have the same proportions as lower case letters with their ascenders and descenders.

    Tabular Lining Figures

    lnum, tnum

    Tabular figures are for use in tables where numerals need to be aligned vertically. Tabular figures are available as a OpenType feature and have a fixed width in all weights. Typotheque fonts include both Lining and Old-style Tabular figures.

    Arbitrary Fractions

    frac

    Typotheque OpenType fonts already include a number of pre-designed diagonal fractions. The fraction feature allows you to create other fractions quickly and easily.

    Superiors

    sups

    Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their superior alternates, which can be used for footnotes, formulas, etc. Superior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text.
  • H1
    H1

    Inferiors

    sinf

    Replaces all styles of figures (old style, tabular, lining) and letters with their inferior alternates, used primarily for mathematical or chemical notation. Inferior characters are more legible than mathematically scaled characters, have a similar stroke weight, are spaced more generously, and better complement the rest of the text

    Indigenous American ogoneks

    ss04

    In Polish and Lithuanian the ogonek under the vowels ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘u’ is placed to the right of the letters, while indigenous languages such as Navajo prefer to center the ogonek.
  • ж
    ж

    Bulgarian Cyrillic

    ss07

    Bulgarian readers prefer to set text in a variation of Cyrillic that differs from the standard Cyrillic by using shapes of letters based on cursive handwriting, where letters are easier to tell apart. Typotheque fonts use standard Cyrillic forms as default, and Bulgarian Cyrillic is applied when the text is tagged as Bulgarian. When the Localised forms feature is not available, you can also apply the same forms by using a Stylistic Set.
  • п
    п

    Serbian & Macedonian Cyrillic

    ss08

    Serbian and Macedonian Cyrillic has different preferred shapes for some italic letters, which differ from the standard Cyrillic. Typotheque fonts use standard Cyrillic forms as default, and Serbian Cyrillic italic is applied when the text is tagged as Serbian Or Macedonian. When the Localised forms feature is not available, you can also apply the same forms by using a Stylistic Set.
  • Georgian Capital Letters

    case

    Georgian alphabet is unicameral, and to convert the lower case letters (Mkhedruli) the capital letters (Mtavruli), you can apply the Case feature.
  • մե մէ մի մխ մկ

    Armenian ligatures

    liga

    Armenian letters often have assymetric protruding shapes that may cause spacing issues in text. Ligatures can be used to address the spacing of these letter combinations.
  • Traditional Georgian დ/ლ

    ss09

    Georgian lower-case დ and ლ can take a short form based on the handwriting models. This stylistic sets replaces them with the traditional printed form.
