Shango font family example.
Based on the elegant and somewhat delicate Shàngó "Classic", Shàngó™ Chiseled goes to the other extreme with a bold and emphatic design that maintains the beautiful classic proportions of F.H.
Shàngó is CastleType’s beautifully-rendered interpretation of Professor F.H.E.
Schneidler
This latter design is usually referred to as Schneidler Initials.
Although Medium and Bold weights were added early on to the somewhat delicate design of Shàngó, it seemed there were other possibilities that might be useful for display use.
Taking the concept of a monoline version of Shàngó — as exemplified in Shàngó Gothic — to its extreme, resulted in the latest addition to the popular Shàngó family of typefaces: Shango Sans.
This is a minimalist face, still maintaining the elegant classic letterforms of Professor F.H.
Ernst Schneidler’s original design, but without obvious contrast in the stroke widths, and of course, without serifs.
An extensive set of ligatures and alternate letterforms, along with powerful OpenType features, give Shàngó Sans a great deal of versatility.
This elegant, modern typeface supports dozens of languages that use the Latin alphabet as well as modern (monotonic) Greek and most languages
that use the Cyrillic alphabet.
Shàngó Sans is a member of the extended Shàngó family (Classic, Chiseled, Sans, Gothic).

Shàngó™, inspired by Professor F.H. Ernst Schneidler’s classic titling typeface released in 1936 as ‘Schneidler-Mediaeval mit Initialen’, is an elegant design that looks best when used at large sizes, as the original name suggests. The Shàngó family extends the original design, and is available in four styles: Shàngó Classic (shown here), Shàngó Gothic, Shàngó Chiseled, and Shàngó Sans. All styles support dozens of languages that use the Latin alphabet as well as modern (monotonic) Greek and most languages that use the Cyrillic alphabet.
