Cordelia is a name associated with the word “cordial” which is literally translated as “something that comes from the heart.” It’s in my opinion, an expressive and energetic exploration of the Carolingian scripts that transmits its calligraphic features into a typeface that provides a pleasant reading in small sizes.
The essence of Cordelia lies in the inflexion point in its internal forms and its assymetrical serifs, resulting from the rhythm, the ductus, the cursus and the texture of calligraphy using a flat nib, and combines it with more dynamic serifs with Dutch influences. It includes a regular weight with Small Caps, and has a large character set that allows coverage for more than 200 languages with over 600 glyphs.
It’s a serif humanist typeface with a calligraphic essence passionately crafted for text designed by Roy Rivera in the Postgraduate Degree in Type Design 2014-2015 in Barcelona, Spain.
