Ropa Soft Pro is Ropa Sans Pro’s charming sister. While Ropa Sans is cool and somewhat technical, almost like brushed steel, the new Ropa Soft Pro family brings a warm and friendly feel, closer to smoked wood, through its rounded corners.
The medium weights of Ropa Sans Pro serve well in body text, while the thinner and bolder styles make an excellent choice for headlines. Fonts from the Ropa Soft and Sans families can be used together to create a richer mix, and the humanistic italics round up the typographic system with additional quirky flavor.
To continue with the tradition established by Ropa Sans Pro, two styles of Ropa Soft Pro are available free of charge: the smooth and understated Regular and the strikingly distinct Extra Bold Italic.
Ropa Soft Pro provides advanced typographical support with features such as case-sensitive forms, fractions, super and subscript characters, and stylistic alternates. It comes with a complete range of old style and lining figures, witch are in tabular and proportional widths. In addition to an extensive coverage of Latin-based languages, Ropa Soft Pro provides essential support for the Cyrillic and Greek writing systems. It is manually hinted and optimized for screens, hence it has an excellent web-font, eBooks or Apps performance.
