Basic Sans

Basic Sans is a sans-serif typeface designed by Daniel Hernández and released through Latinotype in 2016. The design feels like a humanistic take on the grotesque genre, with warm curves and true italics rather than obliques. The family is available in seven weights with matching italics.
