A cosy typeface
Canapé – working title Sofa – by Sebastian Nagel is based on
the idea of letters with a subtly curved and slightly modulated line. Through this, the typefaces has a warm and friendly, almost haptical appearance which brings some kind of cosiness to your communication with type.
Designed and crafted with great attention to detail, the type family is usable for copy texts as well as corporate design or display purposes.
The design started in 2006 and Canapé Serif was released in 2013 after elaborate revisions and practical tests.
Canapé Serif with its 4 fonts and more than 4,200 characters contains a large amount of features like Small capitals, Swashes,
10 different figure sets, automated fractions, ordinals,
standard and discretionary ligatures, language support
for Central and Western Europe, a Capital Sharp S (ẞ)
and a small sofa building kit.
All features are conveniently accessible through OpenType features.
The initial release of Canapé consists of 4 members –
Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic.
Each font also contains small caps and different figure sets, which would require many styles
and expert fonts if provided with conventional font technology instead of OpenType.
The italic styles have an addional set of playful swash alternates for all relevant characters – especially useful for display typesetting.
