Description

Description

Lava was designed for magazine use, but far transcends its original application. It’s a no-nonsense workhorse typeface that can handle large quantities of text with ease. It’s legible and harmonious at small sizes, sophisticated and elegant at large sizes.

Some languages such as Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian prefer variant letter shapes to the standard Cyrillic shapes. Local feature replaces standard forms with localized ones when the text is tagged Bulgarian, Serbian or Macedonian.

Lava (Latin and Greek) was designed in 2013 by Peter Biľak. Cyrillic version was designed by Ilya Ruderman.
