Sansa Arabic Design Information

TYPE BY Sansa, a sanserif superfamily designed by Fred Smeijers, benefits from the liberties taken in recent sanserif design without overdoing them. Yet it is a design full of character and it has proven versatile across a wide range of design uses, from packaging design - to posters, from book typography - to forms. Originally designed by Smeijers for his own correspondence, the family has been released as a retail design in 2002. The family was updated in 2006 and 2012 bringing the family to three widths and an expanded Latin character set. In 2020 Sansa was updated to support Greek, Cyrillic, and Arabic scripts.

The Sansa family consists of five weights of roman and italic designs: Light, Normal, SemiBold, Bold, and Black. The family covers a range of three widths: Normal, SemiCondensed, and Condensed. The Latin condensed variant includes an additional UltraBlack style, a powerful weight for display use. Sansa’s character set comprises small caps; lining, oldstyle and small cap figures (each in tabular and proportional widths); fractions; comprehensive scientific superiors and inferiors, numerators and denominators; case sensitive punctuation sets; mathematical and monetary symbols (in tabular and proportional widths); arrows; standard and discretionary ligatures; and a complete range of accents for all Western, Central and East European languages based on the Latin script. The newly released Sansa Greek, Sansa Cyrillic, and Sansa Arabic families, also support the Latin script based languages.

The Sansa fonts are available in OTF CFF, TTF, WOFF, and WOFF2 formats.

The complete Latin Sansa suite of superfamilies includes Sansa, Sansa Soft and Sansa Slab designs. The Sansa Greek superfamily comprises three widths Sansa designs. The Sansa Cyrillic superfamily comprises three widths of Sansa designs. The Sansa Arabic family comprises a range of four weights of Sansa designs.
