HistoryThis typeface came into existence in the year 1993. It started as a display (italic) typeface until 1998 and was called Nardy until 2001. From then a roman came into existence and I decided to transform the typeface in a more regular (readable) textface.
Versa SansThe sans version was born in 2001. It has been used in many ways and therefore it became a very mature type family.
EconomicThe Versa is a pleasantly readable space saving typeface.

OurType has a vision that is different from most other font companies. It publishes newly designed fonts that are tailored to contemporary needs. Yet it respects traditional values, and strives for the highest quality of product. So it stands equally apart from those who are enslaved to the new and those who merely try to recreate the past. OurType fonts are useful, durable and attractive tools for anyone using type now.
