Capitolina is a modern serif font family that is the first joint project of the Brazilian designers Christopher Hammerschmidt and Marconi Lima where the latter supervised the design work of the former. It is yet another example of the synergistic effect that two talented designers achieve when they combine their efforts. Capitolina font is a nice mixture of different influences. The forms of the serifs vaguely resemble the Clarendon types of the 19th century whereas the Italics have their roots in calligraphy. As a result, although the typeface looks more geometric and constructed, baring all the characteristics of the rationalist style, the humanist touch in it can be clearly felt. Overall, Capitolina’s appearance and great legibility make it perfect for editorial design where the huge potential of this great font will be revealed to the full extent.
Capitolina typeface comprises ten fonts – Light, Regular, Semi Bold, Bold and Extra Bold each with its true Italics. Every one of them contains more than 800 glyphs and offers a great language support for basic Latin and Western, Central and Southeastern European sets. On top of that, a lot of OpenType features are provided like alternates, small capitals, case sensitive forms, ligatures, localized forms, oldstyle and tabular figures, fractions, superiors and inferiors, currency symbols and even basic musical signs. With all these the users will have plenty of means to realize even the boldest and most extravagant ideas which is exactly what is expected from a modern typeface.
Capitolina font family is a release of the independent Brazilian type foundry Typefolio of which Marconi Lima is a founder and a central figure. He is the author of the very successful award winning Pétala Pro, but his collection includes even more outstanding projects some of which you can see here:
