This is Janaina, an attempt to design a text
font for reading on screen and printed media.
I’m designing it as my ﬁnal project at college,
so any kind of comment will be very useful.
I didn’t work spacing and kerning yet, so I’m
sorry I couldn’t provide consistent examples of
the font in use.
I’ve tried to keep the x-height as large as
possible and avoided much thin/thick contrast
to help with low-resolution appearance, but I’m
still analyzing how those design decisions
would aﬀect the overall readability.
‘Q’ is still very experimental, as well as font
diacritics. I’ll have to work hard on that too,
because the font is intended to be used in
Thanks in advance,
