Background

Gloriola is a monolinear sans serif, whose extremely broad range of nine cuts offers endless creative possibilities.

Gloriola Std cuts with corresponding italics are suited for the needs of common typesetting thanks to the open character of letters, to the sufficient x-height and clear forms, combined with the full possibilities of OpenType, such as small caps, ligatures, tabular figures or alternating characters.

Four extreme Display cuts are perfect for display use. Their reduced ascenders and descenders and strong forms are perfect for creating distinct, yet harmonious effect when combined with the other cuts of the same typeface.
