Cyrillic Extension: Alexei Vanyashin
and Lora project contributors
Lora is a well-balanced contemporary serif with roots in calligraphy. It is a text typeface with moderate contrast well suited for body text. A paragraph set in Lora will make a memorable appearance because of its brushed curves in contrast with driving serifs. The overall typographic voice of Lora perfectly conveys the mood of a modern-day story, or an art essay.
Technically Lora is optimised for screen appearance, and works equally well in print.
Designed by Olga Karpushina, and Alexei Vanyashin for Cyreal. Released in 2011 with contributions and assistance from Gayaneh Bagdasaryan.
Lora is a Unicode typeface family that supports languages that use the Latin and Cyrillic scripts and its variants, and could be expanded to support other scripts.
