The Praxis® font family is a groundbreaking example of type digitization in the nineteen-seventies. It was designed by Gerard Unger as a sans-serif counterpart to the Demos® font family, released around the same time.
In its most basic form, the Praxis design is an excellent example of a sans-serif font. It retains the traditional differentiation between thicker and thinner strokes while still retaining a light, attractive quality.
Praxis was one of the very first sans–serif typefaces created for the Dr. Ing Rudolf Hell Gmbh (or Hell company) digital typesetting machine, also known as the Digiset. Partially as a result of his work with the Hell company, Gerard Unger has become one of the most widely known and respected faces in typography.
The Praxis design is a very versatile font. Its delicate individuality is as suitable in logotype as it is for situations requiring very small – yet legible – text. It has been utilized effectively in printing situations where other fonts can sometimes fail.
Conversely, because the Praxis design is an attractive typeface, use in much larger–scale projects is completely appropriate. The signature open counters, tall x–height and sharp stroke terminations mean that design remains effective at larger point sizes as well. Company branding can be made strong and recognizable as a result.
Praxis is featured in the media almost every day in Germany, since it was selected as an official German government typeface in the late nineteen–nineties. The typeface was slightly redesigned and rebranded as Neue Praxis (and Neue Demos) for the occasion.

Licenses for electronic publications (eBooks)
An electronic publication license can be used for the embedding of fonts into electronic documents including e-books, e-magazines and e-newspapers. A license covers only a single title but is valid for the full operating life of that title. Every issue of an e-magazine, e-newspaper or other form of e-periodical is considered a separate, new publication. Format variations do not count as separate publications. If a publication is updated and distributed to existing users, a new license is not required. However, updated versions issued to new customers are defined as new publications and require a separate license.Learn more about licenses for eBooks
Server licenses authorize the installation of a font on a server that is accessed by remote users or website visitors. These licenses are commonly used by Web-based businesses providing goods that are personalized by its users such as business cards, images with captions and personalized merchandise. Users are not allowed to download the font file and the font may not be used outside the server environment. The font may not be employed for a software as a service (SaaS) application in which the service is the actual product and not the means of providing the product. Server licenses cover a set number of CPU cores on production servers (development servers are not counted) on which the font is installed. The license is valid for 1 year.Learn more about server licenses
