Callic is a variable roman font family based on Cancilleresca broad pen calligraphy. The font family explored the translation of strokes of a calligraphy pen to a dynamic yet clearly readable text typeface, the foundation of Callic is the flow of its serif, which is transit from the inertia of calligraphic strokes. To reach the balance point between an elegant script typeface and readable text typeface is what Callic aimed for.

In order to design a useful typeface that satisfied multiple user needs, Callic is built with two controlling axes: weight and optical size. The weight axis ranges from 300-700, and the numbers in optical size indicates the suggested font size, in which the axis ranges from 6-36. By dragging the controlling point on both axes, users can customize the best fit for their work.
