Heron Sans

20 Styles

Steadfast and no-nonsense, Heron is always ready to go to work. It began with a Joe Heroun commission for Men’s Health inspired by industrial, machine-made letters. Unlike other type with mechanical influences, Heron is a refined, versatile family, capable of doing the job in both headlines and small text. Heron Serif and Sans are born of hard iron and steel, but galvanized with Cyrus Highsmith’s warmth and energy; FB 2012


Heron Sans is available as full-featured OpenType fonts with tabular figures, arbitrary fractions, stylistic alternates, and extensive language support.

Fonts are also available in legacy Postscript format with limited character sets.

Heron Sans is also available for online use with @font-face through the Webtype hosted font service.

Among other uses, Heron Sans is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine and Corporate use.
