What is the Ocean Sans® font?

Designed in 1993 by Chong Wah of Monotype, Ocean Sans is a typeface that ranges from normal to extended in width, and light to extra bold in weight. It has a large x-height with resulting short ascenders and descenders. It’s unusual for a sans serif because of its relatively high contrast between thick and thin strokes, which makes it useful for display purposes.
It performs well in innumerable type-setting situations. Since the normal width of Ocean Sans is quite narrow, it’s ideal for magazines and other text settings rife with copyfitting issues.
