About Sarala

Creator: Andres Torresi

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

Sarala is a Devanagari typeface family designed by Andrés Torresi and Carolina Giovagnoli for Huerta Tipográfica. It is based on the original Latin typeface Telex, a sans serif typeface for text.

It is a humanist sans serif design, conceived to be a web font with nice legibility at normal text sizes. Originally based on grid fitting shapes it became a multi-purpose typeface with low contrast, open counter forms, wide proportions and a touch of freshness.

Thanks to José Nicolás Silva, Vaishnavi Murthy and Erin McLaughlin for their feedback.

The Sarala project is led by Andrés Torresi, a type designer based in Argentina. To contribute, see github.com/andrestelex/sarala
