Davis SansDesigner: Patrick Griffin
Publisher: Canada Type
Designed by Patrick Griffin, Davis Sans is a sans serif font household. This typeface has eight styles and was published by Canada Type.

Over the previous couple of decades, the numerous applications that joined print as media requiring design options have actually combined to demand a visual evolution that favours controlled optical geometry and careful counter-space consideration over decorative features typically associated with print design. This is now true in corporate, marketing and interface design, and is even spilling over into editorial designs. Such concentrate on clarity and accuracy in contemporary style environments have actually exposed the lots of issues that riddle traditional print deals with, and increased the call for new services. The renewed type design market reacted to the need, sometimes with original takes that develop on the classics, and often with simply subtle distinctions from the old aesthetics.

The Davis Sans household, though in its own right an exceptional contemporary typeface that works quite well in traditional environments, was developed and produced to be one half of a set of counterparts-- a piece and a sans-- that please the numerous layers of corporate and advertising projects, from identity and editorial to the numerous levels of item branding.

Davis and Davis Sans come in 4 weights with matching true italics, amounting to eight fonts per family. Each typeface consists of over 400 glyphs, with extended Latin language assistance, stylistic alternates, and class-based kerning.

This job was encouraged in part by our desire to send out a number of very promising design students to a postgraduate MA program in typeface style, the costs of which continue to be increasingly expensive for the large bulk of style graduates. With that in mind, we have made the Davis and Davis Sans households readily available at token rates for design specialists and students alike, and the entirety of Canada Type's earnings from these faces will be contributed to those graduates seeking their higher education.
