Sonrisa was designed by Jason Castle and released by CastleType. Sonrisa consists of 8 styles and family package choices. p > Sonrisa is a design that progressed from my sketches of the skeletal structure of Jakob Erbar's Koloss, trying to find its underlying essence without all the contrast and bulkiness of the original style. Sonrisa Thin was the resulting typeface, from which the other weights of the family were established. Mild curves, open counters, generous x-height, and sleekly tapered terminals provide Sonrisa a really legible, modern-day, elegant appearance. When she saw the initial draft of this typeface, the smile on my buddy Jennifer's face provided me the idea to call it "Sonrisa" (Spanish for "smile"). Jennifer, a medical psychologist, described Sonrisa's character as: 'happy, clean, clear, open, happy, spacious, playful, calm. I can see it being used for body line of product such as oils and lotions. Can see it being used in home/travel publications and even Architectural Digest. Yoga publication, certainly.'

Sonrisa is what some foundries call a "Pro" typeface family with all the bells and whistles that supply typographic versatility: real little caps, oldstyle numerals, approximate portions, discretionary ligatures, and other powerful OpenType functions. All fonts in the household, except Sonrisa Titling, support most European languages, including modern-day Greek and languages that utilize the Cyrillic Alphabet. (Cyrillic glyphs designed in assessment with Ukrainian type designer, Sergiy S. Tkachenko.) Sonrisa is available in the original Thin, monoline variation as well as six weights (Light, Routine, Medium, Bold, Extra Strong, Black), and a Titling typeface that is essentially a screen font style building and construction kit.

If you take pleasure in utilizing Sonrisa even half as much as I enjoyed producing it, then I understand you will have a "sonrisa" (smile) on your face!
