Monotype Imaging Holdings, a provider of text imaging solutions, has added the Harmonia Sans family to the Monotype typeface collection. The suite features 17 fonts that can be licensed and downloaded from the company’s Fonts.com, Linotype.com and ITCFonts.com stores.
Harmonia Sans is also available for web site design from Fonts.com Web Fonts. Designed by Jim Wasco in collaboration with George Ryan, both of Monotype Imaging, it combines calligraphic proportions with geometric letterforms inspired by sans serif typefaces such as the Futura and ITC Avant Garde Gothic designs.
Harmonia Sans includes five weights that range from light to black. Each has a cursive italic counterpart. Condensed designs are available for the regular, semi-bold and bold weights, in addition to four monospaced designs. All 17 Harmonia Sans fonts are available as OpenType Pro selections, which allow for the automatic insertion of old style figures, arbitrary fractions, tablular figures, proportional figures, discretionary ligatures and stylistic alternates. OpenType Pro fonts also offer an extended character set to support most central European and many eastern European languages.
