Salford Sans by Lewis McGuffie Type

SALFORD SANS has eight weights, covers four scripts – extended Latin, monotonic Greek, Arabic & Cyrillic – and is made for the kind of headlines, editorial and display work which need to be serious, international and communicative but retain a touch of stylish hand-made personality.

Packed with symbols, tidy features, special Arabic characters, proper Arabic numbers and a range of local styles Salford Sans is based on the traditional British style condensed sans serif. It’s a robust, functional and elegant condensed sans – an update on a classic idea that works well the world over!

Salford Sans is a collaboration between Lewis McGuffie (Latin, Greek, Cyrillic), Dave Williams of Manchester Type (Latin, Arabic) and Elsa Baussier (symbols & useful things).
