Description

With soft curves and strong verticals, Work Sans is a balanced typeface. The ascenders of the lowercase letters extend higher than the uppercase letters, making the typeface dynamic. In keeping with our design system, the visual interest is found in combining geometrically technical elements with a human touch.

Hierarchies

We use Work Sans in four different hierarchies to create exciting typographical layouts.

We use Work Sans Medium for Headlines.

For sub-headlines we use Work Sans Light.

For copy-text we use it in regular. Berupta sum sequi invelib earupta videst, et ut quisserro estis conem. Pitat fugitius aut lati aut lis arum cume posto to es et quaero deris sunto ommolenis volupta. Lorro beaquo moluptur sa consedi onsequis vit offictecatur se maiore nobit et volessit inienist, qui voluptatur aut et ut eius aut qui reic to doluptat esed eaquam la.

For bigger copy-text we use light again. Berupta sum sequi invelib earupta videst, et ut quisserro estis conem. Pitat fugitius aut lati aut lis arum cume posto to es et quaero deris sunto ommolenis volupta. Lorro beaquo moluptur sa consedi onsequis vit offictecatur se maiore nobit et volessit inienist, qui voluptatur aut et ut eius aut qui reic to doluptat esed eaquam la.
