Greta Sans Devanagari comes in 9 weights which, combined with its four widths ( Compressed, Condensed, Normal, Extended), create a tremendous range of possibilities. Even the intervals between the styles are an integral part of this unified typeface system.
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 therefore spaced and kerned tightly. The resulting spectrum then runs continuously from display to text to display use.
All weights of Greta Sans include both Hindi (Sanskrit) and Hindu–Arabic numeral system, which is commonly used world-wide. The default numerals are Proportional Lining numerals.
