Pilcrow Soft was designed by Satya Rajpurohit and released by Indian Type Foundry. Pilcrow Soft includes 5 designs and family bundle options. p > Pilcrow Soft is a Latin-script sans serif household. Its design is simple and utilitarian, comparable to forms discovered on street and highway signs around the globe-- or in-use on cast-metal lettering for commercial products. The typefaces are available in 2 variations: straight-cornered and rounded. While the typical Pilcrow font styles have sharp corners at their stroke terminals, Pilcrow Soft's have been submitted down. Pilcrow and Pilcrow Soft each include five weights: Routine through Heavy. In keeping with the design's mechanical nature, the family does not consist of Italics, as Pilcrow's style of letter fits better with typographic hierarchies utilizing contrasting weights to define emphasis, whereas Italics use inclines or a cursive stroke pattern.

Pilcrow's glyphs have square-like percentages, although the majority of them are narrower than ideal squares. While the typeface does have a monospaced feeling in longer passages of text, the glyphs are proportionally-spaced. Each glyph's width increases just somewhat as one goes up the household's weight scale. An advantage of typefaces produced for utilitarian functions is that their clean and easy letterforms typically increase legibility onscreen. Pilcrow is especially matched for short texts on sites or for newsticker-scrollbars on tv. Because of web 2.0-style logo designs that have actually been popular in the past decade, Pilcrow's Soft version appears especially fit for usage in 'tech' applications. The Pilcrow Soft typefaces have a friendlier appeal to them, contrasting with the harder appearance of the Pilcrow typefaces' squared-off strokes.

Deep cuts, or large crotches, are a popular feature of Pilcrow's style. They are particularly visible in the uppercase 'A','M', 'N', 'V' and 'W', along with in the lowercase 'v', 'w', 'y' and the numeral '4'. In the bolder weights, these junctions complete, however slight ink traps still stay noticeable. The counter kinds of Pilcrow's letters are huge: in the lowercase 'a and 'e', for example, which are more closed than open, the size of these negative spaces is still extremely obvious. The large counters accomplish a more open shape in letters like 'K' or 'k', where the diagonals don't clash with the vertical stroke. The lowercase 'u' is geometric, and not based upon handwritten forms; instead of a complete vertical stroke on its right-hand side, it has a semi-circular base. Some letters have lots of 'character' in a practically dramatical sense-- like the lowercase 't', which is similar to Eurostile or Home Gothic, or the characters. Due to the fact that of the strong diagonal strokes in the '6' and the '9', there is no threat of these being puzzled with figures like '5' or '8'.

The typeface name comes from the 'pilcrow' ( ΒΆ), a typographic symbol used to mark the start of a paragraph.
