Calisia is a Type Design project by Radek Łukasiewicz. Initial sketches of the letter shapes were created back in 2014. The the idea was a reaction to overuse of news oriented typefaces like Times. Calisia is inspired by the warm feeling of craftsmanship combined with compact appearance. Calisia performs well in a narrow column setting. Thanks to an extensive character set and selection of weights the family is suitable for building extensive systems and type hierarchies.
