Publisher: Schizotype
Ekamai was developed by Dave Rowland and released by Schizotype. Ekamai contains 1 style. p > This is Ekamai, called after the district of Bangkok I now have the pleasure of calling home. It is based upon Quinella, and was supposed to be a fast and easy reworking of that font into a 'tight-not-touching' (instead of overlapping) version. As is frequently the case with fast and simple things, it turned out to be neither, and the large majority of glyphs needed to be totally overhauled to fit the new system.

This face is delightfully plump face, with lovingly rendered curves and just the correct amount of cuteness; perfect for food product packaging (of the sweeter variety most likely!), logos, publication headlines and the like. It carries out admirably in all caps settings. The numerals are meaningful hybrid figures (someplace between lining and oldstyle). The total feel is friendly and soft, without being overtly saccharine.

Ekamai is geared up with subtle contextual alternates (which I 'd advise leaving on) to assist with the tight fit, a handful of discretionary ligatures if that's your thing, and a case feature for all caps settings. The stylistic alternates and stylistic set 1 features just alter the # glyph to an appealing numero. Automatic portions are consisted of along with extensive language support.
