Cora

Designed by Bart Blubaugh 

Cora is a sans intended to perform well on screen without losing its attraction in print, and the forthright nature of its shapes allows for condensation or expansion without becoming severely distorted. Because the letters seem large and slightly wide, Cora remains clear at smaller point sizes, giving its voice a little more volume so those in the back of the room have no trouble hearing.

The Backstory

Cora

A versatile and highly legible sans with some contrast.

Cora is a sans serif by Bart Blubaugh that excels in legibility by offering an extra-large x-height, some stroke contrast, and capitals inspired by classical lettering. Because the letters seem large and slightly wide, Cora remains clear at smaller point sizes, giving its voice a little more volume so those in the back of the room have no trouble hearing. The uppercase is based on classical proportions found in ancient Roman inscriptions, which provides opportunities for setting titles in all caps.

Cora is a typeface intended to perform well on screen without losing its attraction in print, and the forthright nature of its shapes allows for condensation or expansion without becoming severely distorted. Its instrokes — which start slightly wide, taper at the beginning of the curve, and then widen again on the vertical stroke — mitigate any stoicism to the letterforms. With this balanced and restrained look, possible applications include website text, telephone directories, dictionaries, and music liner notes.

The complete Cora family comes in six styles (regular, medium, and bold with matching italics), speaks multiple languages, and, along with our entire catalogue, has been optimised for today’s varied screen uses.
