Concept

Hot Sans is a typeface family that handles straightforward communication with ease. It is rational by choice, loosened up just enough with couple humanist touches. It balances between geometric sans and grotesque shapes, a blend of flavours that two genres bring to the fore: the warmth of a grotesque, as well as the robustness of geometric shapes.

Design notes

Hot Sans balances between geometric sans and grotesque sans serif proportions. It is also a blend of flavours that two genres bring to the fore: the warmth of a grotesque, as well as the robustness of geometric shapes. It is rational by choice, featuring no particular detailing, and sporting no arbitrary termination angles—all stroke endings are cut off either horizontally or vertically. Its design builds upon mid-20th century modernist ideas, heavily influenced by the successful European classics of times gone by, namely Neuzeit Grotesk and Mercator.

As this website was coming together in mid-2020, the need for a typeface of Hot Sans’ calibre instinctively arose. Looking back, nearly every type founding house since the 1950s has had a similar typeface in their catalogue—presumptively for obvious commercial reasons. Hence, Hot Sans is exactly that—a good old Margherita pizza of fonts, focusing on the key ingredients, without any additional aromas to overly arouse one’s flavour buds.

Who doesn't love a good pizza? Probably those who don't like Hot Sans either.

Inside it, you will find a couple of unexpected details, such as a double-storey ‘g’, round dots, and softened ‘t’-crosses. It is precisely these small humanist touches that help loosen it up just enough. Depending on how you set them, Hot Sans’ styles can appear very à la mode, or boast strong vintage vibes—it’s completely up to you. A part of this design’s charm lies in its tight spacing, a nod to silk-screened posters and book covers reminiscent of international typographic style, whereby designers would often typeset text with negative spacing—arguably a signature move of that period of time.

Lowercase letter g, atypical for this genre, sports double storey construction that encapsulates calligraphic skeleton inside geometric shapes.
This Mercator-inspired rounded t-cross detail fits really good with the construsction of the g.

Going after qualities such as basic, ordinary, plain, simple, or even neutral, Hot Sans is that one typeface you’ll find yourself using over and over again. It’s strong enough to star as the centrepiece of the design, while its simplicity will help qualify it as the perfect companion to more expressive types in your palette. A wide selection of weights allows for precise typographic tuning, especially using the provided all-in-one variable font.

Brainstorming—something we're not really excited about, but this hat sporting the WIP version of Hot Sans Medium Italic sure does look great. Design by Luka Marčec.
On the other hand, we're always excited about good wines, especially those adorned with the WIP Hot Sans Variable Font version on their labels. Design by Paula Šantić.

As the typeface handles straightforward communication with ease, we envisioned it being used across various mediums, from printed layouts, brand identity systems, digital user interfaces, and all the way to websites. Actually, it’s suitable for nearly any topic in any environment. After all—it’s the typeface caressing your eyes at this very moment.
