The Rotis family was designed in 1989 by Otl Aicher for Agfa; his last type design.
Rotis pioneered the idea of matching subfamilies: Sans Serif, Semi Sans, Semi Serif, and Serif. Readily identifiable in all four subfamilies is the leftward leaning upper and lowercase C.
The typefaces share weights, heights, and proportions, making this a functional mix-and-match family for a variety of uses, from lengthy text setting to short captions to headlines.
