About Kuma Rounded Font Family
In Ancient Greek, Kuma means wave.
This wavy, dynamic and poetic all-caps display typeface is useful for headlines or short texts.
Kuma is the result of a graphic and perceptual game that, using experimentation as a working method, explores the possibilities of writing as an image. This grid-based typeface creates different shapes and directions, never predictable.
There are different types of waves created by the wind. That's why there are three different versions of Kuma: Kuma, Kuma Rounded and Kuma Square. Each version is available in seven weights which can be combined together. In their black and white rhythm, they guarantee global readability and balance.
Kuma Rounded was designed by Jérémy Ruiz.

About L'île Foundry
In 2015 Angela Ippolito, an italian architect, and Jérémy Ruiz, a french graphic designer, founded L'île, a creative design studio. In 2021 they created L'île Foundry, an independent digital type foundry based in Milan.The name of both the studio and the foundry comes from the book La Possibilité d'une île by Michel Houellebecq (There exists in the midst of time / The possibility of an island). L'île Foundry offers a privileged space for experimentation and seeks to give typography a double identity: both an artistic creation in itself and an instrument of communication, a tool for conveying messages. At the same time unique and singular work, but nevertheless readable by all.
