Katana was designed by Parimal Parmar and released by Indian Type Foundry. Katana includes 5 styles and family bundle choices. p > Katana is 21st-century script typeface that loves energy. Its stylised letterforms include a strong slant: about 40 °, or more than twice the quantity of slant discovered in a normal italic font. Katana's angularity expresses an aura that combines the little refined details of calligraphy with the vibrancy of large-format graffiti lettering. Unusual for a script typeface, Katana has numerous weights readily available; there are five in the family, and they vary from Light through Vibrant. As one shuffles from each weight to the next, the level of stroke contrast increases. While Katana's Lightweight is monolinear, the Strong weight has incredibly hight contrast between its thick and thin strokes, which dials up the font style's dynamic-feeling even more. The heavier weights clearly appear like their letterforms have actually been written with broad pens or brushes, and the heaviest font style looks like a techno-style style crossed with the work of a traditional sign-painter. Each member of the Katana household has lining figures as its font style's default character style, but there are likewise oldstyle figures available through an OpenType function. Plus, each typeface consists of about 26 alternate glyphs, substituted into the text whenever the 'contextual alternates' function is active. Katana is a fantastic addition to an editorial designer's toolkit. It comes from Parimal Parmar, a designer in Ahmedabad/India.
