Sumana is actually a family members of Latin and Devanagari fonts for text setting and net usage. Created by Alexei Vanyashin in 2014-2015 for Cyreal.
The Latin counterpart is derived from Lora by Olga Karpushina, Cyreal. Its vertical and horizontal metrics are adjusted to better match together with the Devanagari. The meaning of Sumana in Sanskrit is flower, which can be the meaning of Lora in Spanish. It was fairly a challenge to match the graphical traits of every single script and took many iterations to finalise the first release. I tried to keep the Devanagari closer to a traditional Indian calligraphic model whilst flavouring it with graphic options derived from Lora’s Latin.
