About this font family
Mayonez is a typeface with rational structure and axis but softened with rounded contours and cupped serifs, getting as result a balance between seriousness and friendliness. The shapes have a soft appearance but without lacking definition.

In an attempt to give Cyrillic lowercase romans a fresh look, symmetrical serifs inherited from the versal tendency are mostly avoided thus getting simpler structures closer to the latin forms.
This type is good for commercial and editorial uses like advertising, packaging and pages with showy headlines where a warm touch wants to be given.
The character set includes a group of figures and currency symbols with standard height and another suited to match better with lowercase letters.
Mayonez was selected to be part of the Communication Arts Typography annual in 2015.
