Karela is a piece serif font family. This typeface has sixteen styles and was published by Blancoletters.

Karela is a humanist piece serif household. Karela is also the Basque word for gunwale, this is, the broadened edge at the top of the side of a boat, where the edge is enhanced with wood or other material and to which the thwarts are attached. Gunwales resemble the way piece serifs strengthen vertical stems offering a more robust appearance to the letters.

The tough, strong and frequently mechanical structure that is popular in slab serif or mechanistic typefaces is softened in Karela using subtle tweaks as humanist proportions, a little curved endings in ascenders and curved edges in serifs. The impact of calligraphy is obvious all over the character set, particularly in counters and letters with instrokes like "m", "n" and " r", and it becomes specific in the italics. Karela pursues to give a human touch to a strong and extremely functional structure. It seeks for the ideal combination of strength, accuracy and warmth of the wood parts painstackingly handcrafted by ancient boat home builders. In addition, its low contrast, generous x-height and the constant width of characters throughout weights makes it very convenient for editorial utilizes when low resolution is a concern

Karela likewise takes the principle of grades and explores new possibilities. Grades are used to make up for differences in printing media or screen conditions of text designs. To lessen these subtle modifications without a reflow of the text they have actually to be developed with the same character width of the base style. Karela extends this no‑reflowing idea to the whole variety of designs, permitting to play with any of its weights without unwanted text reflows. Delight in the layout stability while you experiment and have fun with variations!
