Font Family: Deccan, Number of fonts: 5*OTF + 5*WOFF, Type Foundry: Indian Type Foundry, Designer: Saiteja Ramakrishna, Design date: 2015
Deccan is a large plateau making up most of the southern part of India, but the Deccan typeface is a lovely slab serif, with soft terminals. Its design is very friendly. The letterforms call the most interesting 19th century British modern types to mind, as well as quality 1970s digital faces. At its core, Deccan is a text face, but the Bold weight is an excellent choice for editorial or packaging design. The Light weight makes a fine headline choice as well. Often, a typeface’s numerals go overlooked; here they really shine. Both the numerals and the lowercase letters are full of interesting ball terminals.
