Gira Sans is Rui Abreu’s personal take on the grotesque model. Rui looked for inspiration in the early sans serifs of the 19th century; not with the intention to do a revival of Victorian types, but rather in an effort to infuse a modern face with a playful, human feel. The resulting typeface is decidedly contemporary yet subtly quirky, reminiscent of vintage grotesques. It combines clean, clear letterforms with delightful curvy details. The family comes in seven weights – ranging from a slender Thin to a joyful, chubby Extra Bold – all with matching true italics.
