Fedra Sans reflects the original design brief: it humanises the communicated message and adds simple, informal elegance. An important criterion was to create a typeface which works equally well on paper and on the computer screen. The typeface attempts to reconcile two opposing design approaches: rigidity of a typeface designed for the computer screen and flexibility of a handwriting.
Design: Fedra Sans was designed in 2001 by Peter Biľak. In 2004 the OpenType Pro version was released with Cyrillic designed by Gayaneh Bagdasaryan.
