Rambla Alt is a variation of Rambla, which has certain modifications without altering its main structure.
For this reason Rambla Alt is great when used together with Rambla.
Rambla Alt is a humanist sans for medium-long texts. It’s slightly condensed, with a generous x-height and short ascender/descenders. Its proportions have the objective of gaining space in height and width. It’s elegant in large sizes and legible at the same time, with a lot of rhythm in small sizes.
