Karmina Sans

Karmina Sans was developed by Veronika Burian and José Scaglione as a large type family with its own features and personality, able to perform alongside its serifed cousin, Karmina. Karmina Sans shares the same technical excellence and has the same basic proportions, but promises to be a much more versatile tool for editorial designers. Its intermediate weights match the proportions and weight of Karmina Serif and are excellent for setting everything from short texts to long works requiring extended reading, whether digital or in print. The extreme weights at either end of the spectrum are intended for headlines above 14 points and for corporate identity programs.

Early in the design process some of the calligraphic influences present in the serif version were ironed out because they were ineffective in the sans style. For example, the kink on the bowl of the ‘a’ was smoothed, the counter in the ‘e’ made bigger, the connections in the italics were made shallower, and the curved strokes on the italic ‘z’ were straightened.

Multiple master technology, with the light and extra bold weights as starting points, was used to create three weights by interpolation and a heavy weight by extrapolation process. The characters were then finalised by hand for optimal vividness and versatility. The heavy weight is so potent that it delivers one of the darkest and most powerful impressions out there, all while remaining legible.

Karmina Sans comes in twelve styles and speaks multiple languages. It supports Latin A Extended and has ligatures, small caps, a full range of fractions, superior numbers and letters, five sets of figures, and other typographic niceties. The complete Karmina Sans family, along with our entire catalogue, has been optimised for today’s varied screen uses.

Be sure to check out Karmina to complete the look of your design with a highly legible and economic typeface that is perfect for extended reading.

A wizard's job is to vex chumps quickly in fog.

Cute, kind, jovial, foxy physique, amazing beauty? Wowser!

Buvez de ce whisky que le patron juge fameux.

Falsches Üben von Xylophonmusik quält jeden größeren Zwerg


Quel fez sghembo copre davanti

Jovencillo emponzoñado de whisky: ¡qué figurota exhibe!

Nechť již hříšné saxofony ďáblů rozzvučí síň úděsnými tóny waltzu, tanga a quickstepu.

Příliš žluťoučký kůň úpěl ďábelské ódy

Voyez le brick géant que j'examine près du wharf

Jove xef, porti whisky amb quinze glaçons d'hidrogen, coi!

Pójdźże, kiń tę chmurność w głąb flaszy!

Doch Bep, flink sexy qua vorm, zwijgt

Kŕdeľ ďatľov učí koňa žrať kôru.

Põdur Zagrebi tšellomängija-följetonist Ciqo külmetas kehvas garaažis

Jó foxim és don Quijote húszwattos lámpánál ülve egy pár bűvös cipőt készít.

Kæmi ný öxi hér, ykist þjófum nú bæði víl og ádrepa.

Luís argüia à Júlia que «brações, fé, chá, óxido, pôr, zângão» eram palavras do português.

D'fhuascail Íosa Úrmhac na hÓighe Beannaithe pór Éava agus Ádhaimh

Vår sære Zulu fra badeøya spilte jo whist og quickstep i min taxi.

Sic fugiens, dux, zelotypos, quam Karus haberis

Gojazni đačić s biciklom drži hmelj i finu vatu u džepu nošnje.

Pijamalı hasta yağız şoföre çabucak güvendi.
