Font Family: Glosa Text, Number of fonts: 8*OTF, Type Foundry: DSType, Designer: Dino dos Santos, Design date: 2007
Glosa is a type family designed for editorial purposes. Glosa is delicate and highly readable at very small sizes but reveals all its strength and personality when used at big sizes. The contrast of the sharped serifs and ball terminals provides a fresh and very contemporary look.
Glosa Text is a bracketed serif, softer, smooth and less idiosyncratic, suitable for text settings. Both styles have four weights and italics in a workhorse typeface, full of OpenType features such as Small Caps, Tabular Figures, Central European characters and Historical Figures, among others.
Glosa Headline is ideally suited for nameplates and headline typography, with four weights and with lowercase matching the small caps.
In Glosa most of the diacritics were designed to fit the gap between the x-height and the caps height, avoiding some common problems with the accented characters.
