As it you can tell by its name, Contemporary Sans is a modern grotesque font family that is characterized by its elegant and stylish appearance. The most notable features of this typeface and the ones that more than any other define its look are the specific contrast between the vertical and the horizontal strokes and the narrow proportions. It is obvious that Ludwig Übele – the designer of Contemporary Sans family, has given his best to create a very clean and friendly font that offers great legibility. This makes the typeface suitable for both smaller and display sizes which, in turn, means that it could be used in a large variety of applications from corporate to editorial design. Due to its narrow proportions it will work particularly well in narrower spaces like in columns, headlines, signage, menus, manuals, labels, etc.
Contemporary Sans font family comes in 8 weights – Thin, Ultralight, Extralight, Light, Regular, Demibold, Bold and Black – all with their respective Italics. Also, there are plenty of extras provided like case sensitive forms, numerators and denominators, alternates, fractions, capital spacing, ligatures, ordinals, superiors and inferiors, tabular figures as well as alternative single-story ‘a’ and ‘g’ for all Contemporary Sans Italic fonts, which are accessible via the OpenType feature stylistic sets.
Contemporary Sans font family is a brainchild of the German designer Ludwig Übele and is released by his Ludwig Type foundry. Proficient in the fields of type design, logo design and lettering, he once again proves that his experience and skill are of a very high level. Here you can assess more of his formidable projects:
