MuirMcNeil Sans Sans is an economical, robust and versatile sans serif type family. Its design is imprinted with the DNA of a number of protean sans serif typefaces from the latter half of the twentieth century, elegant late modern styles that are often referred to as 'neo-grotesques'. In developing Sans Sans, every contour, stroke, curve and counter form has been honed to its most natural shape in order to render each individual glyph in the simplest, smoothest possible form.
Sans Sans is the initial outcome of an ongoing MuirMcNeil project aiming to distil the latin alphabet to an organic system of archetypal component parts for subsequent use as the subject of a series of visual experiments investigating individual typographic features, such as legibility, symmetry, emphasis, rhythm and frequency.
Sans Sans is intended as an alternative to those contemporary typefaces that extend into a myriad of styles and subfamilies. It has been conceived as an unequivocal, distinctive design, drawn in two styles, upright and italic, each in 13 matching weights.
