Cristiano Sobral

Designer of the free font Germano (2016): Germano is based on Open Sans Condensed by Google: it was changed to OpenType CFF curves, and a Bold Oblique weight was added.

In 2016, he published Rising Sun, a further step in the development of the successful free sans typeface family Raleway, initially designed by Matt McInerney as a single thin weight, and then expanded into a 9-weight family by Pablo Impallari and Rodrigo Fuenzalida in 2012 and iKerned by Igino Marini.

In 2016, he extended Andika New Basic (by Victor Gaultney, Annie Olsen and Pablo Ugerman) and published it as the free typeface Quebec. Still in 2016, he extended Hector Gatti's Archive (2012-2015, Omnibus Type), and called it Ushuaia (Open Font Library). Andreas Larsen's DIN emulation typeface Gidole was extended by Cristiano to Normung (2016). One of URW's GhostLib fonts was extended in 2016 by Cristiano to the U001 sans typeface family.

Typefaces from 2017 include Miedinger (a take on Helvetica, actually first conceived in 2015) and Petra Sans (based on Cantarell).

In 2018, he adapted Philipp H. Poll's Libertinus Mono (2012) to add a slashed zero, and called it Corbi Mono S.

In 2020, he published Mulinito, which is based on Vernon Adams's Muli and Nunito Sans. Storia Sans (2020) is a slight modification of Titillium.
