Sirba, a low-contrast serif
that is even in complex settings
Available in the four basic styles plus a Black version, which is unique in that its proportions are designed so the counters remain prominent enough for excellent legibility when set in very small text sizes. Since the stem width is twice as thick as the Regular weight, Sirba Black’s spacing and letter width are rather generous in comparison to other typefaces of the same weight.
Much attention was given to the italic and roman as equal counterparts while designing the type family. The italic distinguishes itself just enough without creating unevenness when looking at the text as a whole. To get a sense of Sirba’s personality, look at the flame-like interrobang and question mark or the artistic paragraph and section symbols.
Sirba has five styles and its character set covers over 50 languages that use the Latin script, plus polytonic Greek (consultation by Irene Vlachou and Gerry Leonidas), a full set of IPA symbols for phonetic pronunciation, and support for Cyrillic, including Bulgarian alternates (consultation by Kiril Zlatkov). It also includes many OpenType niceties such as a set of arrows, ornaments, extended ligatures, small caps, five sets of numerals, and more. Taken together, these characteristics make Sirba a great choice for handling important information in an enjoyable way.
