NEWS TAGGED ‘stylistic alternates’

CA Cula Family

Hur­ray, CA Cula, a new text fam­ily designed by Thomas Schos­tok {ths} is being released today. When we look back into our archive we dis­cov­ered that the first alpha ver­sion dated back to 2007. It’s some­what spooky to think that it took us 4 long years to final­ize this type­face but you know, we are pool watch­ers. So either we are very lazy and loved our pool, the girls and the Mar­ti­nis a lit­tle bit too much, or we just spent a tremen­dous lot of time and effort into the pro­duc­tion of the type­face. How knows…

This type­face is stand­ing in the tra­di­tion of cool tem­pered sans serif type­faces like DIN. But at a closer look it reveals a ten­dency towards rounder reading-friendly forms. The denat­u­ral­ized ink traps give CA Cula a very spe­cial and indi­vid­ual look in dis­play sizes, whereas in smaller sizes the pos­i­tive aspects of huge ink traps show effect. The text looks clean and bright with­out black dots in the typo­graphic image. This makes CA Cula suit­able even for longer text, while the bold weight makes pretty cool head­lines. The tech­ni­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tions speaks for itself: 8 styles, cen­tral Europe char­ac­ter set, exten­sive ligatures, old-style numer­als, true ital­ics and styl­is­tic alternates.
