Work Sans

The Work Sans specimen is unusual being almost entirely focussed on the functional aspects of the typeface. Providing the user with the usual features of the typeface, this specimen goes a step further and presents the typeface in multi-language long-form.

Adelle Sans Chinese

A versatile complement to the Adelle typeface family, Adelle Sans Chinese ships with a sparce but elegant specimen getting its priorities straight: invite the user to test, then go on to explain the origins and design. Function first.

Söhne

Exquisite specimen from Klim Type Foundry. On the surface, the specimen for Söhne is simply presented. Almost like a print specimen. It's not until you interact with the type that the controls appear for a feature-rich typetester. What is particularly interesting about this one is the ability to test multi-lingual definitions of 1984's Newspeak.
