Jabana - a font for coffee and more. It was developed in 2013 by Nils Thomsen to be his first release at MyFonts. Nils was inspired to create Jabana having a “Schorle” at Hamburgs coffee bars.
Super compressed to extended letter shapes in 5 widths, smooth handwritten marker curves and especially a wide range of OpenType features define the large character set of Jabana.
Each letter and punctuation has got three simple varieties of alternates which gives the font a nice looking handwritten nature. They will be randomly chosen by the contextual alternates feature or even by hand via stylistic set (ss01, ss02).
The whole set of characters for serious Western European typography come along with Jabana.
Beside the standard accented letters, fractions, mathematical glyphs, superiors and inferiors you will find alternates, extra bullets, different arrows, negative figures and roman numerals.
Another reason for the amount of 1500 glyphs is the inclusion of the numerator and denominator letters which come from A-Z and include punctuation and the extra bullets (ss09-16). They are meant to be used for decoration or distinction. Especially an OpenType stylistic set gives an extra touch to it while putting a dot/line above denominators or underneath numerators (ss03+numr/dnom).
If Jabana is too unique for your purpose have a look at Jabana Alt. These alternate fonts have got standard uppercase proportions and a larger x-height for the lowercase.
Extras! … If you need some awesome specials, “Jabana Extras” can help you to realize a fast and good looking design. Beside Arrows, Banners, Lines, Ornaments and Web or Coffee Icons you will find much more … You’ll love it!
