Certa Sans font
The humanistic approach when creating sans-serif typefaces is tricky but very interesting and sometimes dangerous matter. Certa Sans font is an excellent example of how this approach works – Glen Jan really did it well with this family and the result is just amazing.
Being mostly sans serif Certa Sans is pinned right on the border with the hidden serifs typefaces and even in some aspects grabs tasty elements from modern Fracturs. This is an interesting typographic blend which results in a very diverse and useful font family featuring 8 weights each with corresponding italics – a total of 16 top-notch fonts! The uprights are more strict and conservative while the italics carry fresh and elegant spirit of organic hand-writing.
Certa Sans is developed with a wide array of multilingual diacritics including excellent Cyrillic alphabet accessible in OpenType savvy software. We were surprised to find many other extras like alternates, ligatures, superiors & inferiors, numerators & denominators, dedicated small caps and many other more.
Altogether this is a family with excellent distinguished design and multi-purpose functionality. Ideal choice for editorial design especially for publications where legibility and contrast do matter.
Certa Sans Medium and Certa Sans Medium Italic are free fonts.
