“Work Sans” is a superfamily in progress based loosely on early Grotesques — i.e. Stephenson Blake, Miller & Richard and Bauerschen Giesserei. There will be 9 weights across 5 widths. The core of the fonts are designed for on-screen medium-sized text usage (14px-48px). The fonts closer to the extreme widths and weights are designed for display use. Features are simplified and optimised for screen resolutions – for example, diacritic marks are larger than how they would be in print.
