Thesis Font Family

Thesis provides the user with three compatible styles – TheSans, TheMix and TheSerif – in an optically harmonious range of eight weights, including real italics for each weight. Consisting of three different font styles (TheSans, The Serif, & The Mix) the Thesis superfamily provides YVC designers with the flexibility and freedom to create interesting typographic layouts while staying within YVC’s font family. With 96 separate variations within these three font families, this robust collection should be used whenever possible. In situations where you are unable to use the Thesis fonts, please use our secondary font family, Open Sans.


Part of the Thesis superfamily, TheSans is a slightly varying weight sanserif font with 48 variations. Characterized by its open appearance and tall x-height, TheSans is a very readable font and should be considered the standard font to use in publications.
