I have to find a couple of sans serif faces with old style (hanging) figures. FF Info Text is one. Could you suggest a few others, please? -- Soren O
just testing my new logo ... -- Soren O
The most interesting ones I know of are Scala Sans and Legacy Sans.
I was surprised that a venerable face like Akzidenz Grotesk is available with old style figures: http://www.bertholdtypes.com/bq_library/90030.html
The list is a fairly long one. Apart from the fonts mentioned there are, in no particular order: Le Monde Sans Solex Bliss Meta Fedra Sans Cronos Metroflex Sophisto Praxis Textra Avenir Next Pro FF Fago FF Eureka FF Signa FF Strada John Sans Apex Sans Franklin Gothic (URW) Sorry, no links. I am sure there are many more. M
Matthew, thanks a lot, this will be a great help! -- Soren O
to add: Index from Garagefonts
Matthew, Thanks for including Sophisto in your list... S
A few more for consideration... Christian Robertson's Pill Gothic Neil Summerour's Cynapse Pro Alejandro Paul's Kautiva and Politica
I guess all of those ads don't work. Giacomo from Terminal Design has os figures as well.
Thanks, everyone! Not only do I now have a lot of suggestions for a font for a cvi assignment - you also reminded me of a lot of beautiful sans serif faces. -- S
