Bouba Round Theory
A round type family with a professional approach

If you look closely at how things are designed today: From product design over print design to digital user interfaces, you can see that rounded elements are key elements in many designs. Your cellphone has rounded corners as well as the digital button you press to log into your favorite app.

The underlying concept of Bouba Round, was to match that visual language. Unlike a lot of other rounded typefaces that are made to be “fun”, Bouba Round does not stop here. Of Course it works for children's products, ice cream or fun parks, but Bouba Round has a serious background. We designed it in a way that it can also be a great choice for your next online bank app.

Type Theory: Some interesting statements about rounded shapes in design.
Anthony from UX Movement about rounded shapes
“Sharp Corners” vs “Rounded Corners”

Designers use rounded corners so much today that they’re more of an industry standard than a design trend. Not only are they found on software user interfaces, but hardware product designs as well. So what is it about rounded corners that make them so popular? Indeed they look appealing, but there’s more to it than that. Some experts say that rectangles with rounded corners are easier on the eyes than a rectangle with sharp edges because they take less cognitive effort to visually process.

The fovea is fastest at processing circles. Processing edges involve more “neuronal image tools” in the brain. Thus, rectangles with rounded corners are easier process because they look closer to a circle than a regular rectangle. Scientific research done on corners by the Barrow Neurological Institute found that the “perceived salience of a corner varies linearly with the angle of the corner. Sharp angles generated stronger illusory salience than shallow angles”. In other words, the sharper the corner, the brighter it appears. And the brighter a corner appears, the harder it is to look at. [Source]

Ferdinand Ulrich about rounded typefaces
Technology: Signs and screens

Typographers deal with readability and legibility problems; several parameters such as line spacing, character spacing or tracking can be adjusted to improve text in captions, headlines on posters, or instructions to be read from far away. But there are exceptional challenges where typography hits a glass ceiling and changes to the typeface itself need to be made. When a signage system is backlit, type will be outshone; even the sharpest edges will blur and appear out of focus. So if type is sharp in one application, but the same type appears round in another environment, we are losing control and thus have a problem, as both cases may not be recognized as one brand. The solution to this problem is a typeface that is equipped with round shapes and corners in the first place. In the end the result is honest: what you see is what you get. [Source]


OpenType Features – or what else you can do with it, besides designing your next banking app.

Bouba Round not only has an extended character set to support the most common latin based languages, but also includes a rich OpenType feature support. The OpenType features enable excellent typography for the users in all contemporary layout applications.

ARQ

Alternates

For those who would like to use a pointy ”A“ a more quirky “R” or a reduced “Q”to get a different look, we added specific alternative versions of these letters in Stylistic Set 02, 03 and 04 which are easily available through the OpenType feature palette.

Home grown Bananas

Alternates

You want to reduce the forms even more? Then you can activate Stylistic Set 01 and all spurs of m and n will be reduced to just a one line geometric letter. This might also be a nice choice for logos.

Confidence

Ligatures

If two letters have the nature to collide when used in combination a ligature is needed to solve this unwanted event. Ligatures are especially designed solutions for such letter combinations. This font contains a set of ligatures which are automatically substituted as soon as these letter combinations are typed in.

Fractions

If fractions are needed anywhere an OpenType code makes sure that if you type any numbers combined with a slash between a fraction will automatically be substituted.

Tabular Figures

Besides the normal lining figures, the fonts also contain a set of tabular figures. This means that all numbers have the same width, which is useful for setting up invoices, tables or every other task where the figures should have a structured appearance among themselves.

For texts with 362,879 words

Oldstyle Figures

When lining figures are used in a reading text they often produce a visual stretch in the text and disturb the grey value. It has the same effect if you use ALL CAPS in a text. One solution could be to make the numbers slightly smaller and give them some more space in-between. The other, more elegant way is to use the old style figures, they have ascenders and descenders like the lower case letters and will fit seamlessly in the text.

Subscript

A subscript is a character that is set slightly below the normal line of type. They are used in formulas, mathematical expressions, and specifications of chemical compounds and isotopes, but can have many other uses as well. These characters are not simply ordinary characters reduced in size – to keep them visually consistent with the rest of the font, they are slightly heavier than a reduced-size character would be.

Superscript

A superscript is a character that is set slightly above the line of type. It has the same weight and size like a subscript character. They are also used in formulas, mathematical expressions and text references, but can have many other uses as well.

Symbols

Additionally to the letters this font family contains a big set of symbols and arrows fitting to the characteristics of the typeface. The user can combine text and elements keeping a homogenous design language.

Language Supoort

Bouba Round has an extended character set that supports more than a hundred languages. Part of the language coverage is the support for Latin, Greek and Cyrillic script.
