Greta is a powerful toolbox capable of dealing with the most complex typographical situations, supporting Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic and now also Devanagari. It is the largest available system of interrelated styles available for the Hebrew language, coming in 10 weights and 4 widths. Read more about development of Greta Sans▸
Greta Sans was planned from the outset as a system of interrelated styles, and comes in 10 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.
Like all Typotheque fonts, Greta Sans includes Small Caps in all styles. Additionally, Greta includes a wealth of other advanced OpenType features such as alternative styles of letters controlled by Stylistic Set substitution.
