Villeray is a sans-serif designed for maximum versatility. With 8 weights, plus an italic and a charming rounded edition, you can achieve many different styles. Villeray also comes with many different alternates, most of them in stylistic sets, so that if you don’t like a particular character, you can replace it with an alternate. The project was started back in august 2015.
