Cora is a sans serif with an experimental bent, offering a large x-height, some contrast of stroke weight, and capitals inspired by classical lettering. The uppercase exhibits classical proportions found in ancient Roman inscriptions, which provides opportunities for setting titles in all caps.
The large x-height gives it a voice with a little more volume so that those in the back of the room have no trouble hearing. Because the letters seem slightly large, Cora remains clear at smaller point sizes.
It is a typeface intended to perform well on screen without loosing its attraction in print and the nature of its shapes allows for condensation or expansion without becoming severely distorted. Possible applications include telephone directories, dictionaries or website texts.
Cora was selected as winner of the Granshan competition 2008 in the text type category.
