About Gitan Latin:

Gitan is a flared sans serif, reminiscent of engraving and stone carving. Sturdy and informal, the design features a moderate contrast. Cuneiform head serifs and deeply cut wedge terminals give Gitan a sculptural appeal – a quality desired for all things display. A rhythmic pattern and the classic construction make it sparkle in text. A natural look with a dynamic, that thrives in wooden and rock-solid materials. Gitan’s habitat is at the crossroads of editorial and packaging work, but by nature Gitan is flexible and willing to take risks.

What others say:

“One sans serif that I think is truly original is Sherpa Sans [now called Gitan].”

— Gerard Unger for the Pangramme exhibition catalogue

“Runge is the new Unger!”

— David Březina, chief type officer at Rosetta
