Extended information

Signika is a sans-serif with a gentle character, developed for wayfinding, signage, and other media where clarity of information is required. It has a low contrast and tall x-height to improve readability of texts in small sizes as well as in large distances from the reader.

The typeface comes with a wide character set supporting Western European languages, Polish, and Czech. The figures are designed as tabular.

All weights from Light to Bold have alternative Negative versions optimised to solve the effect of juxtaposed positive and negative text setting, where the text in negative tends to look thicker.

Basic Font Information

Signika is a sans-serif with a gentle

as well as in large distances from the reader.

The typeface comes with a wide character set
supporting Western European languages, Polish,
and Czech. The figures are designed as tabular.

All weights from Light to Bold have alternative
Negative versions optimised to solve the effect of
juxtaposed positive and negative text
setting, where the text in negative tends
to look thicker.

Small caps and small-cap figures will be
published soon.

however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
