Essential Sans | An 8 Weight Versatile Typeface


Introducing Essential Sans – my very first full typeface with 8 weights and italics (16 fonts total).

As a fun bonus, I’ve also included a variable font for Adobe users (and a few other programs) if you’re wanting extra versatility.

Essential Sans is an eight weight, 16-font typeface designed to be an easy go-to for branding, web, and print design projects.

Each form is pared down to its essentials, so it’s extremely versatile and can blend in or stand out as much as you choose.

It’s versatile enough to be used on its own, or paired as you see above with Editor’s Note, Perfectly Nineties, or Nautica (free with Adobe Fonts subscription).

You’ll also get outline circled numbers 0-9 and letters A-Z, as well as solid circle versions of the same for each font (which you can access through the alternates or the Glyphs panel!), plus a set of arrows — all of which can be used to create beautiful, minimalist logos and design elements.

One thing to note about Essential Sans is the letter spacing. It was intentionally spaced for clean reading if you wanted to use it for body type, so I recommend setting the spacing a little tighter for display use (around -10 to -20 should do!).

But wait, how can I use this font?

Can I use these fonts for my logo?

Yes! You'll need a desktop license to use this font for your logo or other print designs. If you'd like to use the font on your website (outside of a rasterized image), you'll need a web license as well.

What’s the difference between licenses?

Each font license covers different usage situations. For example, a desktop license will cover the functions of most design work (i.e. making logos, print materials, social media promos, etc.).

A web license, however, is needed when you want to use the font on a website (i.e. using a custom font for your website headers). You won't need a web license if you create images with the text that you upload to your site – for example, a logo on a website is just fine with a desktop license because it's an image, not editable type.

An e-pub license is specifically for ebooks, so if you wanted to use a font for your chapter titles and publish the book to Kindle or another ebook format, you'll need an e-pub license.

App licenses are appropriate when you'd like to use the font as non-editable text in an app. Note: this is not a server license, so you cannot use an app license for print-on-demand or customizable design apps (i.e. Canva, Over, etc.).

How many licenses do I need?

You'll need as many licenses as users. So if you work at a design firm where 30 designers on your team will need access to the font, you'll need to purchase 30 of the appropriate license.

Desktop License Use includes one license, which can be used for:

  • Logos
  • Branding
  • Non-editable Invitations
  • Packaging
  • Products
  • Canva

Desktop License Use does not accommodate:

  • App use or web use where customers can use the font to customize products (i.e. if you're creating an app or site that uses embedded fonts to customize, like Over or
  • Ebook use
  • Downloadable/customizable PDFs
  • Server upload (if you need more than one designer to have access to the files, a separate license needs to be purchased for each designer or person requiring the files)
