A versatile and custom sans serif typeface family for newspapers.
Created for the redesign of multiple regional newspapers, with the aim to serve as an ideal companion to the serif typefaces used in the forthcoming redesign of the newspapers (Lexicon by Bram de Does and Tiempos by Kris Sowersby). This typeface family is intended to match the emotional attributes targeted by the new layout: very warm, dynamic, optimistic, friendly, newsy, contemporary, human, accessible… Its other purpose is to bring an exclusive personality to these printed publications, and to enhance their online versions.
The family consists of two subfamilies: Multi H is distinctive in headlines and large sizes and Multi T is functional for small size texts. The Multi H subfamily consists of six weights: ExtraLight, Light, Regular, Bold, ExtraBold and Black. The Multi T subfamily consists of two weights (Regular and Bold) and two constructions (Roman and Italic), the fonts are: Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic.
