Feel the solemn presence of the monumental Civane.


















High atop the mountain of fonts, a new structure has been raised--one solid and strong against the challenges of time. Civane is a victorious conqueror among fonts, standing above the clutter and the mundane. Its firm structure joins effortlessly with graceful calligraphy in a new flowing, inscriptional typeface.

Civane is inspired by monuments of great civilizations, whose lofty inscriptions remain chiseled into the very stones and columns of their structures. The font’s medium contrast with its flared stroke ends lead the reader to feel the solemn presence found in these great obelisks and shrines. Even Civane’s thinnest weight holds a quiet power over its audience. Still, its classic lines provide a beautiful flow between the strong letters, allowing the reader’s eye to move easily across the page.

Civane supports OpenType features and comes with upright italics, alternates, ligatures, old-fashioned figures, titling and small caps. Preview all these features in the interactive PDF manual. The font family has 48 fonts, with three widths and eight weights. The font family also includes glyphs for 72 languages; over 550 glyphs per font stand ready for you to command throughout your design.

Civane is built for advertising and display typesetting as well as title and small text, making it an excellent choice for websites as well as flyers and packaging. Use it for defining your brand or for creating designs that evoke academia, militaria, monuments, automobiles, signs, and so on. Its 48 well-designed fonts are well-equipped to help you leave your mark on history.
