Here we are going to introduce you to the sans-serif typeface that is known as Compacta Font that was designed by the famous designer Fred Lambert in the year of 1963.

The letters of this typeface are slim in size and there is a little space between the same as in the optima font. The reason why the white spaces between strokes are the best white stripes and dots that make the textual content great.

This typeface is not so great for longer text but this typeface will impress everyone when it comes to titles and headlines. This high-quality lettering fashion was originally depicted handiest with capitals and numbers.

Compacta font is famous for its bold typeface. This light font is great for its text generator function and it is also mostly used in online works. This is quite similar to the fira sans font.
