Font Designer – Paul Hickson

Designer Paul Hickson created Wade™ Sans in 1990.
The basic forms of the font are those of a constructed sans serif, as seen in the circular O and triangular A. The low x-height of the lower case letters make this font particularly reserved and graceful and the high ascenders give it a certain elegance. The high, wide capitals need a lot of space and dominate the overall look of this font. Wade Sans Light is reminiscent of the elegant cabarets of the 1920s and 30s.
The Know How section offers detailed background knowledge to deal with all enquiries about the use of fonts.
