【Akaya Telivigal】一种单一粗细的英文免费字体 英文 商用推荐



Akaya是一种单一粗细的实验性字体,使用卡纳达语、泰卢固语和拉丁文字。Akaya Telivigala和Akaya Kanadaka是两个独立的字体文件,它们共享一个共同的拉丁语。


关于Akaya:泰卢固语和卡纳达语的文字可以追溯到高度风格化的卡丹巴文字。在接下来的几个世纪里,这些文字受到历代王朝的庇护,他们多次重新解释这些文字。这些解释在本质上越来越务实,在很大程度上消除了结构上的复杂性。

这种简化被早期的基督教传教士更进一步,他们为这些剧本制作了第一个主角类型。然而,当他们这样做的时候,他们引入了一种受铜版启发的笔划调制方法来调制这些字符,在那之前,这些字符在本质上基本上是单线的。这些字体的笔划调制是沿着横轴的。这里的字母形状是几何的和构造的。传教士的这些早期实验仍然是最广泛接受的风格,在文本设置中效果良好。


当人们环顾今天在书名、涂鸦或宣传告示上发现的手写泰卢固语或卡纳达语景观时,一种反复出现的书法风格是显而易见的。这似乎与刻板、正式的文本风格截然不同。这里的字母形状更流畅,比例也更大方。笔划调制和对角线重音呼应了拉丁书法,适用于卡纳达语和泰卢固语。Akaya是基于这种生动的手写风格。


Akaya的字母形状试验了反向导管,每个字符的书写方向都是反向的,以增加流动性。阿卡亚拉丁语也采用了相同的原理和对比角度,这取决于字母的结构。这形成了其特征形状的基础。


Akaya is a single weight experimental display typeface in Kannada, Telugu and Latin scripts. Akaya Telivigala and Akaya Kanadaka are made as two separate font files which share a common Latin.


About Akaya

Telugu and Kannada scripts trace their origins to the highly stylised Kadamba script. Over the following centuries, these scripts were patronised by successive dynasties who reinterpreted this script several times. These interpretations were increasingly pragmatic in nature, stripping off structural complications to a great degree.

This simplification was taken a step further by the early Christian missionaries who made the first lead types for these scripts. However, when they did this, they introduced a copperplate inspired stroke modulation to these characters which were largely monolinear in nature till then. The stroke modulations in these founts followed the horizontal axis. The letter shapes here were geometric and constructed. These early experiments by the missionaries remains the most widely accepted style and works well for text settings.


When one looks around the hand-written Telugu or Kannada landscape today, found on book titles, graffiti or propaganda notices, a recurring calligraphic style is evident. This appears quite distinct from the rigid, formal text styles. The letters’ shapes here are more fluid and proportions more generous. The stroke modulations and the diagonal stress echo Latin calligraphy and work well for both Kannada and Telugu scripts. Akaya is based on this lively hand-written style.


The letter shapes for Akaya experimented with reverse ductus, where each character is written with its stroke direction reversed to add fluidity. The same principle and contrast angle is applied in Akaya Latin, depending on the structure of the letter. This is forms the basis for its characteristic shapes.
