Resist Sans is a free-spirited neo-grotesque that embodies both the innate desire for revolt and a tendency towards uniformity. While Resist Sans preserves the neat, minimalist look which is associated with neo-grotesques, it also accentuates the tentativeness of each letter form. The name, too, hints at the rebellious character of the typeface. Resist Sans comes in 20 styles (10 uprights and matching obliques). While it was originally designed under a name of Resistance, we eventually realised that Resist Sans sounds virtually identical, but looks neater and more distinct.

Each of the two versions of Resist Sans comes in 5 weights (Thin to Bold) and is equipped with matching Obliques, which brings the total number of styles to 20. Two trial styles (Text Light and Display Medium Oblique) can be downloaded free of charge. Each style contains 870+ glyphs, awesome OpenType features, and more than 2500 kerning pairs.
Resist Sans comes in two versions: Display and Text, which serve different purposes but remain interchangeable and even complementary in some cases.
Resist Text is equipped with deep ink traps and optical compensators, which really come into play at smaller sizes. Certain glyphs (such as 'f', 't' and 'l') are more narrow, which makes larger bodies of text more uniform and solid.
Resist Display features more contrast, especially when rounder glyphs like 'p' and 'd' are involved. The aforementioned 't', 'f', and 'l' are wider, more idiosyncratic. It's perfect for headlines and logos. However, we also kept the narrower glyphs in Resist Display—they are accessible via Stylistic Alternates (ss01); wider letters can also be accessed in the Text version via the ss01 feature.
Resist Sans is truly multilingual. It supports most European and Latin-languages and features Extended Cyrillic, which gives access to such languages as Russian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Macedonian and many more. Try it out on MyFonts.
Resist Sans is available for purchase on MyFonts: you can either download the full family or select between individual weights and sub-packages (Text or/and Display).
If you downloaded the free styles and liked what you got, you can support my work on Buy Me a Coffee.
