The inspiration for the font “Cīrulis Display” can be found in the handwriting of the Latvian artist, graphic artist, painter and master of applied art Ansis Cīrulis (1883 – 1942). Ansis Cīrulis’ creative contribution ranks him among the most important founders of Latvian identity. Work on the font began in 2007 while working on a book about Ansis Cīrulis (“Ansis Cīrulis. Saules pagalmos”. Publishing house “Neputns”, 2008). After a careful study of the artist’s original works and letter shapes, a new font was created offering a modern interpretation of the 20th century Eastern European romanticism. The newly developed font is available in two formats: Regular & Bold and supports letters and characters in more than 30 languages.
