About Riacho Font Family

Riacho is a Portuguese word for “creek”. It evokes movement and tranquility. It was in this spirit that I created Riacho: I wanted a typeface that would bring the industrial dynamism of a sans serif while passing the informality and trust of an old friend.

Riacho is completely handmade, stylus-designed, with a rational, objective attitude.

Riacho is sans, but its capital letters are serif. The kerning is rigorous, and the ligatures are reduced to the essentials without distractions. The font features a subtly emotive handwriting, which makes it ideal for editorial material for children and young people.

Poems, love letters, food recipes ... everything that is about feelings and sensations looks fresh and elegant dressed in Riacho!

Riacho, for its friendly sobriety, also looks (and prints) great with scientific texts. Mathematical equations typeset in LaTeX / XeTeX systems have never looked so good, not only on PowerPoint/beamer/OpenOffice slides but also on paper. Riacho's x-height is similar to Times Roman and Computer Modern fonts, so typesetting professional equations with both glyph sets together flows naturally.

Riacho has lots of OpenType features: fractions, old style figures, scientific inferiors, proportional numbers, localized forms...

Each Riacho style contains 1195 glyphs (19120 in the whole family, 16 styles), including Eastern/Western Europe languages and polytonic Greek (please refer to gallery image #10) . For best results on screen display (PDFs, presentations, movies), the Semibold subfamily is recommended.
