About this font family
Quinoa is display typeface by Catharsis Fonts that unites the seemingly opposed concepts of clean geometric architecture and organic humanist warmth. While it is designed for display and editorial purposes, its accessible forms make for comfortable reading even at small text sizes. Its exuberant adaptive «f», «j», «Q» and refreshing titling alternates bring display text to life. Quinoa covers multilingual Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, and Armenian. More…
The Quinoa family spans three stylistic cuts (Quinoa, Quinoa Titling and Quinoa Round) with matching hand-slanted obliques, each of which comes in six weights. The Titling cut offers a number of alternate capital letter designs with lowercase-inspired forms for a refreshing unicase look, and the Round cut additionally removes the spurs from arched letters like n. A host of other OpenType features including ligatures, contextual alternates, small caps, figure sets, and character variants are built into all cuts. Furthermore, the small caps of Quinoa and Quinoa Titling are available as dedicated font files under the names «Quinoa SC» and «Quinoa Unicase» for ease of use.
