André Simard drew ITC Migration Sans with design traits that he repeatedly looked for in faces for his design projects. “ I wanted to give it advantages I knew graphic designers would appreciate,” he recalls. “A large x-height and slightly condensed proportions are just a couple of these qualities.” The two-storied “a,” bowl-and-loop “g” and legibility “I” also distinguish the design – and will aid text readability.
He says that he chose the name “Migration” because the typeface marks his “migration” from working with typefaces as a graphic designer to designing them as well. The ITC Migration Sans suite is available in five weights from a svelte Thin to a robust Black, supported by a cursive italic complement.
