Sanomat was drawn by Paul Barnes as the primary headline typeface for Sami Valtere’s 2013 redesign of the Helsingin Sanomat, the most widely read quality national daily newspaper in Finland. The family is an unusual hybrid: a serif face with flared sans terminals, influenced by ‘serifless romans’ like Optima and Albertus. This almost inscriptional quality helps the typeface look serious and decidedly upscale, and the gentle curves and humanist sentiment are designed to echo Finnish twentieth century architecture and design. Though Sanomat was originally drawn for editorial design, its distinctive personality adapts easily to other environments. For example, its elegance feels appropriate to fashion and beauty, and its warmth can breathe life into otherwise sterile layouts on screen.
