Designed by Ian Lynam, SmytheSans Pro is a screen sans font family. This typeface has 10 styles and was published by Wordshape.

SmytheSans Pro is a contemporary workhorse sans serif family that is eminently legible on-screen and in print. It is an upgraded version of our popular household Smythe Sans-- we extended the characters sets, redrew most of the characters, carefully spaced and kerned the entire household, and included a lot of brand-new functions. Smythe Sans Pro includes Western, Central and Eastern European and Vietnamese character sets and is provided in 5 weights: thin, ultra light, light, regular and bold.

SmythSans Pro includes a big x-height, adequate yet economic spacing for capitals, and subtle ink traps for less-than-perfect printing conditions (which can be exploited as style features at big scale). All of the capitals from the old SmytheSans Display household are folded in to SmytheSans Pro as OpenType available stylistic alternates-- NASA-inspired space age alternate caps galore! The original SmytheSans household featured Italic and Oblique cuts-- in Smythe Sans Pro, the more calligraphic italic characters are offered by means of OpenType-accessible stylistic sets. Each weight of SmytheSans Pro features a bespoke paragraph mark which differs from weight-to-weight and consists of over 100 ornament, kinetic guideline, kind, sign and pattern-making glyphs so that one may use SmytheSans Pro as a total style kit.

The lighter weights are somewhat slimmer than the routine and strong weights to offer the typeface more of a vertical feel, welcoming readers' to rapidly check out typeset text with a maximum of contrast and a minimum of optical dazzle. All work well on-screen as webfonts and in print as book type. Each is hinted with precision and kerned with precision.

SmytheSans Pro is an incomparably legible typeface, particularly at little sizes on-screen. The strokes throughout are regulated to enhance humanist expression, with high-contrast horizontal pieces secured of particular letterforms to keep readers' eyes moving forward in text. The typeface's tendency towards a tall x-height was performed the single-storied typeface with more horizontal attributes for boosted readability while being super-friendly and intense in appearance.

Features of Smythe Sans Pro:
-- total Western, Central and Eastern European characters sets enhanced for text typesetting
-- significantly improved spacing guaranteeing beautiful results in print and on screen for the Czech, English, Hungarian, Croatian, Esperanto, Maltese, Romanian, Turkish, Albanian, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Basque, Bulgarian, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian and Vietnamese languages
-- all lowercase characters have an enlarged x-height, developing less optical dazzle than typefaces like Futura, Neutra or Avant Garde
-- ink traps to boost smooth printing when using less-than-optimum production procedures like Risograph or if a press is overwhelmed with ink
-- retro-futuristic alternate characters for most capitals
-- 100+ accessory, kinetic rule, form, symbol and pattern-making glyphs
