Having learnt about multiple master technology, I wanted to put this knowledge into practice and create a versatile type family that encompasses two axes: weight and width, from extremely thin (2 units) to pretty black, and compressed to normal. Furthermore, I was curious to explore non-Latin scripts and designed a Cyrillic character set as well. Design-wise, I opted to go for a humanist sans, usable for both running text and headlines. The friendly look conveys a warm, human touch and makes body text a pleasure to read. Esper started at the extremes: I first drew a hairline to get the skeleton and rhythm down. Then, a black weight followed, with an intermediate master for contrast completing the design space. Later, the width axis brought the total master count to six.
