Suggestions for a Stressed Sans?

VersuS's picture

I'm looking for a new stressed sans, maybe a "fresher" version of Ocean?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

By "stressed" do you mean one with contrast?
Condor is versatile and pretty fresh in terms of release date, though connects to historical styles.

Relato sans
Nota (by typonine)
Ideal sans (by Hoefler & Frere-Jones)
Actium
Karmina Sans
Haptic Pro
Orenga
Quadraat Sans !!!
Leksa Sans
ITC Legacy Sans
Stone Sans

Some of these are just very 'humanistic', others, like Quadraat Sans, have a clearer stress. All can be found on the Myfonts.com website, except for Nota and Ideal Sans.

Thin stressed sans-serifs (high-contrast; incl. Noir, BP Sang Bleu Sans)

Reading sans-serifs (contemporary ‘humanist sans-serifs’, or ‘serifless romans’; incl. Legato, Quadraat Sans)

For something in the vein of Ocean I second Condor. Or Roxy.

The newest one is probably Ideal Sans by Hoefler & Frere-Jones

I don’t see any real stroke contrast besides minor visual adjustments in Ideal Sans. Maybe we should define “stressed sans” first.

Yes.
A sans where a layman can see any contrast at all (when asked).
