Planet is a typeface based on humanistic rather than modern proportions. While, sans-serifs based on classical proportions have geometric, circular shapes, they end up running very wide, Planet is far more compact, and for that reason, more useful. Although, Planet is a practical, down-to-earth typeface for body text, it has surprising details. For instance the fine connections at K and R, the lusty terminals at c and e, the elegant descenders of g and y, the extraordinary et-sign, and the remarkable numbers.
Planet is a friendly but also clear typeface. It is versatile and can be used for a wide range of typographic content including editorials, brochures, webpages, packaging, and corporate design.
The italics are somewhat narrow with rather calligraphic forms. In use they create a nice contrast to the wide upright, or used alone, they create a very legible and harmonious piece of text.
As in all typefaces of Georg Salden, the numerals of the Planet are exceptional. Planet fonts contain both lining and old-style figures, both proportional and tabular.
