Flat Sans font family is the latest in the long line of the works of the very prolific and successful British type designer Dave Rowland. In fact, it is a product of his conviction and belief that Flat is the most likely future of the type design. So, he decided to offer to the public a typeface that is conformable to this trend. Flat Sans font family has it all – a grotesque humanist appearance with very clean letterforms and ultimate high legibility as well as a great number of extras entitled to any modern script. Of course, the sheer look of it makes this typeface suitable for enormous range of applications at any size.
Dave Rowland took great care to make Flat Sans as versatile as possible. For example, through the stylistic sets provided, he leaves the choices to the users. Among them are single or double storey “a” and ‘g”, two different forms of “y”, alternate versions of lower and uppercase ‘l’ and an alternative ‘q”. Lots of other OpenType features are provided too – case sensitive forms, arrows, superior lowercase letters, currency symbols, automatic fractions, numeral styles, great language support for many languages based on the Latin alphabet as well as some Greek characters. Flat Sans comes in 16 weights – Ultra, Extra Light, Light, Regular, Semi Bold, Bold, Extra Bold and Black with their respective Italics.
Flat Sans font family is published by Dave Rowland’s one man type foundry – Schizotype. At first, the name may seem quite strange to you but if you look closely at the work of the foundry you will quickly find an explanation. One prominent side of the Dave’s work is that he doesn’t concentrate or specialize in just one style or genre of the type design but his work is very diverse.
