The 15 different fonts in the Why Square family are an extension of the designs begun in Zoran Kostics Just Square family. Why Squares lowercase letters are all more condensed versions of Just Squares letters, and in some of the fonts, the uppercase letters are wider. The first five of the 15 fonts are the different weights of Why Square (Ultra Thin, Ultra Light, Thin, Light, and Regular). Here, all of the characters both upper and lowercase are more condensed versions of the geometric letters from the Just Square family. The next five fonts (Ultra Thin, Ultra Light, Thin, Light, and Regular weights) include identical lowercase letters to those from the first five fonts in the family, but their capitals are considerably wider. These may be used as initials, either with the other fonts in the Why Square family, or with the Just Square family. The last five fonts in the Why Square family are Cyrillic versions of the first five weights (Ultra Thin, Ultra Light, Thin, Light, and Regular).
