A mix of crisp angles and soft shapes, Linex Sans is both inviting and elegant. The subtle calligraphic overtones distinguish the design from more traditional sans serif designs.
Linex Sans History
Linex Sweet was designed by Albert Boton in the late 1990s. It’s a smallish family of three weights; the middle weight has an italic companion face. With its soft corners and slightly quirky head-serifs, Linex Sweet is a friendly design that sees much use. Several years later, Boton began sketching a new design, based on the original Linex Sweet but with a little more authority and grace.
Linex Sans is the result. A three-weight family with a complementary italic for the Regular weight, Linex Sans is a versatile communications tool in both text and display sizes. It offers that mix of sophistication and joie de vivre that characterizes the designs of Albert Boton.
