Rotis Font Family
This unification of two classic forms was almost revolutionary in 1988. Over centuries, designers had strictly avoided blending serif with sans serif. Their point of view was that leaving the serifs off an antiqua and giving a sans serif new curves and edges might be something new, but not something better. But Rotis® was made based on exactly these principles and can boast of high legibility.
Rotis can be used in a variety of applications and is even today one of the most successful text types. Many companies use Rotis as their company font, among them Nokia, FSB, Baumann & Baumann design studio.
