Call Sans Font Family

While the default design is ahistorical, there are historical design options. Using Stylistic Set 01 (ss01), Futura-specific alternates can be deployed. Including diacritic variants, there are 48 alternates for this set.


In celebration of Futura’s geometrically extreme ligatures, Cal Sans has an experimental approach to ligatures; Stylistic Set 02 (ss02) is identical to ss01 but combines eligible letters as historical Futura ligatures.

Design Philosophy

We have created the design of Call Sans for display, and it is currently a single static font. This Call Sans design approach is unusual for its texture and default typography. We kept the space of letters very close for the tight headlines “out of the box.” For more minor subheadings, we can apply positive letter spacing.

There are currently no other Open Source geometric sanserifs geared as intentionally for “tight but not touching” typesetting—as it is more labor-intensive to produce with accurate texture. But for typesetters, the results would not be as consistent if they would letter space another design as tight as Cal Sans.
