Font Information

Faceplate was originally created for a series of type design workshops.

It was made available commercially in 2001 as five half-weights with matching obliques. As humanist sanserifs go, Faceplate is fairly non-descript, however it does have a few distinctive attributes, including bowed-in diagonal strokes, intended to conserve linear space, and a tri-oval g.
