Nudista is a monolinear, geometric sans-serif based on the proportions of the Purista typeface, released by Suitcase Type Foundry in 2007. This time, the forms are not based strictly on square shape, but rather on a pleasant oval, round shape. The letter outlines are smooth, even technicist, the geometric precision is however compensated in places where it would get in the way of legibility and compromise the desired visual impact. The face was originally conceived as a display type, but it is sufficiently legible even in text sizes. Thus, it suits short texts in corporate prints.

Carefully chiselled letter curves are sturdy and well suited for the harsh conditions of low-resolution printing devices, they work well on computer or mobile phone screens and can be printed on laser printers. However, the face will work best in corporate systems, navigation and road sign systems, where it may be, also thanks to the extensive range of weights, a good alternative to the well-known and thus a little played out DIN. Naked typeface with no needless decorations will humbly serve in all places where too expressive face could be disturbing.
