The Optima Font is a humanist sans-serif typeface that was released by D. Stempel AG foundry, Frankfurt, Germany, in 1958. This typeface has some similarities with Garamond and Centaur Fonts.
Optima typeface is used by different designers for different purposes. It is also used in science-fiction role-playing games. It has an extended font family, which includes:
Optima Pro Roman is a powerful sans serif typeface inspired by 19th-century grotesques and neoclassical architecture. The family is well suited to modern and classical graphic design, and its large x-height makes it particularly well-suited for use in small sizes. Ideal for headlines and short text, Optima Pro Roman’s forms are condensed but open enough to give the typeface an air of elegance.
Optima Pro Italic is a softer, more flowing companion to Optima Pro Roman. The stress is on the italics, which are the primary glyphs used in setting lines of text. It has a slightly more delicate quality than the roman, which helps provide contrast without being too jarring.
Optima Pro Medium has a slightly wider x-height than Optima Pro Roman and Optima Pro Italic, making it even more readable as a text font at smaller sizes. It’s particularly well-suited for logo use or where readability is crucial at small sizes; the slightly wider forms make it less compact than its counterparts without sacrificing legibility or style.
