Optima NovaDesigners: Hermann Zapf, Akira Kobayashi
Publisher: Linotype
Optima Nova was designed by Hermann Zapf, Akira Kobayashi and published by Linotype. Optima Nova contains 60 designs and family bundle options. The font is presently # 48 in Best Sellers. p > With the clear, basic sophistication of its sans serif forms and the warmly human touches of its tapering stems, the Optima household has shown popular around the world.

In 2002, when it was lastly possible to produce digital alphabets without technical constraints and compromises, and more than fifty years after the very first sketches, an expansion and redesign of the Optima family was finished and launched as Optima nova. Hermann Zapf and Japanese type designer, Akira Kobayashi, teamed up on the task, that included re-working of the existing weights and the addition of several brand-new weights: small caps, old design figures, light, heavy, and condensed.

The original Optima was never produced with a genuine italic, only an oblique version of the roman. Optima nova has a total range of perfectly created real italics; the new italic types, of the e, f and g are particularly notable.

The titling face includes capital letters with unique and uncommon letter combinations and ligatures, making it an excellent choice for headlines, logo designs and advertising functions. Optima continues to be a versatile typeface; and Optima nova works for simply about anything from book text to signs.
