smart Unicode sans serif font for literacy use (Design Reviews)
Andika ("Write!" in Swahili) is a sans serif, Unicode-compliant font
designed especially for literacy use, taking into account the needs of
beginning readers. The focus is on clear, easy-to-perceive letterforms that
will not be easily confused with one another.
A sans serif font is preferred by some literacy personnel for teaching
people to read. Its forms are simpler and less cluttered than some serif
fonts can be. For years, literacy workers have had to make do with fonts
that were available but not really suitable for beginning readers and
writers. In some cases, literacy specialists have had to tediously cobble
together letters from a variety of fonts in order to get the all of
characters they need for their particular language project, resulting in
confusing and unattractive publications. Andika addresses those issues.
The principal purpose of this Design Review release is to get feedback
(http://scripts.sil.org/Andika_feedback) from the people who know literacy
font needs best. Please make your insights and observations known to us.
This is work in progress but is it already very useful. The review period
is now over but you may still get in touch with the upstream designers.
See the FONTLOG for information on this and previous releases and for
contributing to the project. Work on the final version of the font
family is currently underway.
