Clear Sans is a versatile OpenType font for screen, print, and Web. We designed Clear Sans with on-screen legibility and glanceability in mind. It strikes a balance between contemporary, professional, and stylish expression and thoroughly functional purpose. It has a sophisticated and elegant personality at all sizes, and its thoughtful design becomes even more evident at the thin weight.

Clear Sans has minimized, unambiguous characters and slightly narrow proportions, making it ideal for UI design. Its strong, recognizable forms avoid distracting ambiguity, making Clear Sans comfortable for reading short UI labels and long passages in both screen and print.

Clear Sans supports a wide range of languages using Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek scripts. The font family includes Medium, Regular, Thin, and Light weights with upright, italic, and bold styles.

Clear Sans supports these code pages:

  • CP1252 Latin 1
  • CP1250 Latin 2
  • CP1254 Turkish
  • CP1257 Baltic
  • CP1251 Cyrillic
  • CP1253 Greek
  • CP1258 Vietnamese

Clear Sans was designed by Daniel Ratighan at Monotype under the direction of the User Experience team at Intel’s Open Source Technology Center.
