Styles

Greta Sans Korean comes in 10 weights creating a tremendous range of possibilities. Even the intervals between the styles are an integral part of this unified typeface system.

Full width design

Greta Sans Hangul a full-width typeface, using the entire 1,000-unit box space for all weights from lightest to darkest. Side bearings are relatively narrow compared to the fonts favoured in Korea, and they are optically adjusted to keep the flow of the rhythm in text. The Latin, Cyrillic and Greek glyphs within this font were enlarged to 125% of their usual size to prioritise the needs of Korean users.
