    Il Sole 24 Ore is an Italian national daily business newspaper. CAST (Cooperativa Anonima Servizi Tipografici) was commissioned to design a sans serif to accompany Sole Serif, a newspaper typeface family by Luciano Perondi that likewise started out as a custom typeface for Il Sole 24 Ore in 2010. Designed by Perondi together with Riccardo Olocco, Sole Sans has been in use by the newspaper since 2018, alongside its seriffed sibling.

    Both Sole Serif and Sole Sans are available for general licensing from CAST. Read more about the making of Sole Sans in an interview with the designers conducted by Massimo Gonzato. See also The Observer for another newspaper that uses Sole Serif.

      The word spaces seem very narrow in the second picture

      I wouldn’t judge the finer points of spacing from a small and compressed photo, taken at an angle.

      The Sole family has evolved into an impressive series. Congrats, CAST! I’m confident we’ll see many more great uses of both branches of the superfamily. Students and other tentative font buyers: Take note that all styles of Sole can be rented from Fontstand!
