Type Gallery – Praxis

Font Designer: Gerard Unger, 1977
Praxis® was designed in 1976 by Dr. Gerard Unger. Praxis is the sans serif counterpart to Demos®, another early digital type designed by Unger, who is an accomplished Dutch typographer and teacher.
Praxis and Demos share important characteristics, such as open counters, a tall x-height, and blunt stroke terminations. Both faces have very little thick/thin variation, which facilitates smooth linear enlargement and reduction. And like Demos, Praxis is a flexible and legible typeface that works well in small point sizes and on low-quality paper (office documents, newsletters, newspapers, etc.).
The word “Praxis” comes from Greek, and means “a practical application.” In the late 1990s, Demos and Praxis, along with Univers® 57, were selected as the official typefaces of the German Government.
