Signika is a sans-serif with a gentle character, developed for wayfinding, signage, and other media where clarity of information is required. Its low contrast and tall x-height help readability of texts in small sizes and in large distances from the reader. All weights from Light to Bold have alternative Negative versions created to compensate for the effect of juxtaposed positive and negative text setting, where a white text on a dark background tends to look bolder than a dark text on a white background. The typeface comes with a wide character set supporting over 220 languages including most of the Latin-based European languages, some African languages, and Vietnamese. It offers advanced typographic tools like ligatures, small caps, and case sensitive punctuation. There are two sets of figures and currency symbols: shorter, for long-form reading, and taller, fully-aligned with capitals, for signage and titling. Since the 2020 update, Signika also includes 250 pictograms and 60 combinable arrows, designed in cooperation with Slovak graphic designer Peter Machaj.
