Proudly announcing the «Sonar» family

Hannes Famira's latest family of typefaces is a reinterpreted classic. While Sonar is a geometric sans serif, it lacks the antiseptic sensibility prevalent in this genre and offers instead a warm, familiar elegance. Each font contains a strategic set of stylistic alternates, which transform the entire font, expressing different degrees of historic flavor.
Sonar’s five optical weights progress in steps, too fine to leave you wishing for additional in-between styles, but distinct enough to keep the typographer’s choice easy. The italics are performing a balancing act between true italic letter forms and the minimalist, merely slanted style demanded by Sonar’s historic ancestry.
