Although the design was inspired in part by the austere aesthetics of modernist typefaces, it maintains a liberal style and aims for deliberate visual idiosyncrasy. The metaphor of “fantasia” as a musical form expresses this freedom of style and the attitude with which the typeface was created.

While many modern typefaces embody idealized, mathematical proportion (which may be musically analogous to the forms of “sonata” or “fugue”), Fantasia Sans does not seek an internal geometric or proportional logic. Rather, the typeface playfully mixes consistent letterform construction with several outlying, inconsistent glyphs for variety.
