Designed by Gert Wiescher, Artis is an art deco and display sans font family. This typeface has twelve styles and was published by Wiescher-Design.

»Artis« is the name for my latest art-project-font. Obviously I just chopped off the last »t«. Then I looked it up on Wikipedia and what do you know, it is of latin descent. »Ars Gratia Artis«  which means »art for arts sake« or in French »l’art pour l’art«, a perfect font name. If I would cut off the »s«  as well it would mean disambiguation and that in turn is, what I just did here. Enough disambiguation!

»Artis« is a modern classical beauty with extreme contrast between up- and downstrokes that make it unique with a touch of art deco and showing Renaissance roots. But – »Artis« is a twin-font that has an elegantly decorated twin sister »Artis-Swing«. Between the 2 fonts you have endless possibilities for combination. I love these twins!

It is a great everyday workhorse with seven weights from ExtraLight to Bold and all the necessary weights in between. Great for short copy and elegant headlines!

With 964 Glyphs it is a truly European font designed for all Central European and Latin using countries. »Artis« has a set of Cyrillic that is – besides Russia – also good for Serbia, Macedonia and Ukraine. It has oldstyle- and lining-, tabular- and tabular-oldstyle-figures and many ligatures.

»Artis« comes in Sans and Swing and is an elegant, playful and friendly font. Enjoy!
