August Sans is a modern humanist sans serif typeface.
Ascending dynamic movement characterizes the structure of it’s characters——stylistic alternates emphasize this impression.
The family comprises eight weights from the most delicate "Hairline" to the strong "Bold"——each upright and italic. Using the variable font, the intermediate levels can be controlled fluently.
The forms and proportions of the August Sans have been selected to be very legible as body type for longer texts. It is so robust, it can function positively as well as negatively and ist still legible from a great distance or under unfavorable conditions. In large sizes as a heading, the font is very eye-catching.
The shapes of the individual characters follow the "humanistic" form language of modern faces. This makes August Sans an attractive alternative to most of the sans serif fonts used today.
In addition to ligatures for problematic letter combinations, it contains stylistic alternates for some characters that make the appearance even livelier.
Small caps provide a restrained opportunity for emphasis.
In addition, August Sans offers several sets of numerals: Proportional standard figures ¦ Lining figures at the height of the uppercase letters ¦ Proportional oldstyle figures with ascenders and descenders ¦ Non-proportional tabular figures ¦ Superscripts and subscripts ¦ Numerator and denominator to represent fractions ¦ Numbers in a circle.
The very good legibility of August Sans makes it the ideal typeface for information systems——a selection of directional arrows is included.
