Candara is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Gary Munch and commissioned by Microsoft. It is part of the Clear Type Font Collection, a suite of fonts from various designers released with Windows Vista, all starting with the letter C to reflect that they were designed to work well with Microsoft’s Clear Type text rendering system. The others are Calibri, Cambria, Consolas, Corbel and Constantia.
Candara’s verticals show both entasis and ekstasis clarification needed] on opposite sides of stems, high-branching arcades in the lowercase, large apertures in all open forms, and unique ogee curves on diagonals. Its italic includes many calligraphic and serif font influences, which are common in modern sans-serif typefaces. Calibri and Corbel, from the same family, have similar designs and spacing.
