Mundo Sans™ famille de polices

Conçue par  Carl Crossgrove en 2002
Mundo Sans, from Carl Crossgrove, is a design that's going to be around for a good long while. In the more than ten years of on-and-off development Crossgrove devoted to the project, he was able to polish the design to its current unpretentious luster. This is a typeface with legs.

There were several humanist sans typefaces that I admired when I began work on Mundo in 1991. I used these designs - and surprisingly, Futura - as models for proportion, weight, flow, spacing, and rhythm in my design." Crossgrove also gives credit to hand-lettered signage as a strong influence on the heavy weights in the Mundo Sans family. These letters were sometimes "giant-sized," explains Crossgrove, "using heavy sans caps with slightly flaring stems, and a humanist skeleton. This lettering style was part of the sign painters' repertoire before signs were produced digitally."

Throughout the project, Crossgrove aimed to create a humanistic typeface with subtle pen ductus, a wide range of weights and a fluid, unobtrusive italic. He kept the design clean and distinctive enough for display use while still being sufficiently understated and proportioned for text composition. With seven weights and a complementary suite of cursive italics, there is little outside the range of the Mundo Sans family. Weights range from the delicate and understated Extra Light through the forthright Medium to the lively and robust Ultra. Mundo italics are true cursive designs with fluid strokes and obvious calligraphic overtones. The flick of the down-stroke in the 'a,' the descending stroke of the 'f' and graceful curve of the baseline of the 'z' add grace to the design and distinguish it from more traditional sloped-roman italics.

Crossgrove says that Mundo isn't meant to be revolutionary, yet it has a quiet distinction that separates it from other humanistic sans. Without shouting "new and different," Mundo just works."

Tag: frac

Fonction: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Fonction: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.


Tag: ordn

Fonction: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).


Tag: sups

Fonction: Replaces lining or oldstyle figures with superior figures (primarily for footnote indication), and replaces lowercase letters with superior letters (primarily for abbreviated French titles). The application can use this feature to automatically access the superior figures (more legible than scaled figures) for footnotes, or the user can apply it to Mssr to get the classic form.
