Sauna was developed between 1999 and 2002. The starting point for the design was the inflamed desire to create an extremely round and heavy display font which would be sexy! The round forms seem even rounder because the type also contains sharp corners and straight lines which create strong contrast. During Sauna's development, lighter weights were added for small sizes, making the Sauna family a flexible and cohesive typeface. Since its release in 2002 the Sauna family has been upgraded and expanded a couple of times, making sexiness available for present-day needs.
