With Thesis, Luc(as) de Groot pioneered the concept of the all-purpose type system or superfamily. Thesis provides the user with three compatible styles – TheSans, TheMix and TheSerif – in a range of eight weights including real italics. The Thesis family has been expanded over the years (TheSans and TheMix are now available in three widths). TheSans also offers three ultra-narrow widths and several sub-families.
