Optima is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Hermann Zapf and originally published through Stempel in 1958. An updated version was released by Linotype in 2002 under the name Optima Nova. Although classified as a humanist sans, Optima feels more like a serif typeface without the serifs. The design features high stroke contrast and flared terminals, taking inspiration from inscriptional Roman letters. Optima exudes a feeling of elegance, making it a popular typeface choice for beauty products.
