As powerful as any other member of the collection, Cera Round combines warmth with elegance and its support for Cyrillic makes it a reliable and engaging companion for international communication.
Drawing on a tradition of machine-milled lettering and combining it with the technical geometry of Cera, Cera Round features circular stroke endings and softly rounded corners to create cheerful feeling text. Amongst its smooth, yet precise letterforms, the circular o takes on a new, striking quality.
While the regular has been carefully proofed for long editorial texts, Cera Round’s six weights, thin to black, allow for a whole range of expression in display typography. Where the light weights have all the cleanliness and precision of technical drawings, its heavy weights are playful and soft:perfect for strong headlines and packaging projects.
With this broad spectrum of expression, from technical to friendly — and always sincere — Cera Round is an excellent choice for branding and editorial design. Its large x-height also means that it is recommended for interface design.
And while Cera Round may be a counterpart to Cera, it’s not just Cera with rounded corners. We’ve carefully reworked and adjusted many of the glyphs to adapt them to Cera’s new attitude. When rounded edges and smooth shapes created new optical problems, we found new solutions: making Cera Rounded an individual member of the Cera Collection.
Beyond Latin, Cera Round supports Cyrillic with localised alternatives and, as always, it is equipped with several typographic extras: tabular figures, arbitrary fractions, useful symbols and dingbats.
