What is the Soleil font?

Soleil, designed by Wolfgang Homola, is a geometric sans serif typeface. Unlike most existing geometric sans serif typefaces, it has asymmetrical counters, making it look fresher, more dynamic and more contemporary. Simple geometric forms – such as the circle or the square – played a certain role in the design of the letterforms, but in order to introduce more fluidity into the rather stiff and rigid concept of geometric sans serif typefaces, a lot of optical corrections were necessary.
Soleil is based on the modernist ideas of simplicity, clarity and reduction to essential forms. Yet its letter shapes are not the result of geometric construction, but of a design process that brings together simplicity and fluidity, clarity and rhythm. More…
Soleil has a rather large x-height, making it legible also in small sizes or from a bigger distance. The typeface family consists of six weights.
The Opentype version also allows for the implementation of typographic features such as Small Caps, lining and old-style figures, both tabular and proportional, ligatures, alternate characters, case-sensitive variants and fractions.
Soleil offers a wide range of potential applications: signage and wayfinding systems, book and magazine design, branding and corporate publications.

You're probably thinking - Is Soleil available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Soleil is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Soleil, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Soleil is that you get the license to use it leagally.

In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Soleil remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
