Benton Sans is a humanist sans-serif typeface released in 1995 by Font Bureau. It was designed by Cyrus Highsmith, who drew inspiration from the 19th century typefaces of American type designer Morris Benton. With its open counters and slightly condensed letterforms, Benton Sans is highly legible and works well in both display and text settings. Its letterforms are characterized by a warm, friendly appearance, with round shapes and generous proportions that evoke a sense of comfort and familiarity.
The font is versatile and can be used in a variety of contexts. Its friendly, approachable character makes it a great fit for websites, magazines, and other publications that want to convey a sense of warmth and comfort. It also works well in branding and advertising projects, where its classic, timeless style can be used to evoke a sense of nostalgia and tradition.
