A versitile Sans Face

Hildebrant's picture

Ok, so I have come about some credit at FontFont.
Some of you may know how.

Im looking to pickup a versitile sans face.
I want something that I can make good use of.
It needs to be something with chracter, but not overly mannered. Something that would work well for a text face. Hopefully with a 'pro' set. SC OSF and the such.

I've been wanting to pick up Scala Sans for some time now. Is this the time?

For Scala Sans? No time like the present!

BTW, How is "Scala" pronounded, Skay-la or Ska-la?

Funny thing you ask, I just asked the same question last night, in conversation with a friend.

I think it rhymes with "gala." ;-)

But some people pronounce that "gay-lah". :-/

Since the name comes from an opera house in Milan, I'd pronounce it "SCAH-lah". On the other hand, I pronounce Officina with a "tch" (since it's [also] of Italian origin), but its creator (Spiekermann) pronounces it with an "s"!

Kyle, Scala is certainly versatile, of character, and texty. But it's also too ubiquitous. I'd go for something less used, like Eureka Sans, Profile, Quadraat Sans, or maybe even Karbid.

Quadraat Sans, Mmm, goos sugestion. I had admired the Serif, but had nevered really paid much attention to the Sans. Reminds me a bit of Unger's work.

How about favorite San-erif faces in FontFolio 9 (or 8)??

I know. It was a joke.
