Rig Sans is a streamlined geometric typeface, which speaks in a confident, affable tone. Its open, clean structure lends text a neutral, transparent quality. Each character is designed to produce the most robust form, with a focus on simplicity and legibility. Its shapes were adapted from sturdy letterforms, originally designed to withstand 3D distortions.
Each was subsequently refined and the character set expanded. This unique approach has resulted in an original sans serif rendition and an adaptive, durable type family. The generous x-height, clipped terminals and wide apertures enable Rig Sans to shine, both in print and on screen. Rig Sans comprises of eight weights and accompanying italics.
The problem that many sans serif fonts run into is the similarity of their I, l, 1 These can look indistinguishable from each other when reduced to a single stoke. Rig Sans has a distinct I, l and 1 plus a dotted zero for clear differentiation between characters.
Rig Sans comprises of eight weights each with accompanying italics. Each weight contains 514 glyphs. This website is set in Rig Sans Light and Semibold, hosted by Adobe Fonts.
