Default One-day sale: Generis Sans

Linotype is offering six fonts from the Generis family, OT Standard, for $49/€49 for 24 hours.

Erik Faulhaber designed the Generis®font family in 2006, basing his initial drafts on space-saving American grotesque typefaces. By means of the addition of an antiqua font, a style that emphasizes the serifs and a further simplified sans serif, Faulhaber has created a contemporary font system consisting of Generis Sans, Serif, Slab and Simple.
The focus was placed on optical criteria during the design of Generis Sans to provide for a high degree of technical precision. Harmony, rhythm, legibility and restraint of form are the factors given priority. The carefully composed forms and proportions with the optimal use of space ensure effortless uptake of information in both the print and on-screen environments. This lucid and functional family also comes with small caps, oldstyle figures and genuine italics. The Generis Sans font design is extremely versatile and is ideal when used for routine communication and in high-end corporate design.
Our selection contains the six basic styles of Generis Sans in the contemporary OpenType Std format (Light, Light Italic, Regular, Regular Italic, Bold and Bold Italic) that you can use individually or as the cornerstone of a future Generis font system.
