Nueva, designed by Carol Twombly in 1994, was originally conceived as a potential lowercase companion to her 1990 titling typeface Charlemagne. Nueva came into its own with a contemporary kinetic lowercase with its own capitals to match. Nueva has very high stroke contrast, with round, bouncy counterforms and stroke shapes, particularly in the wider instances. The low connecting joins of the arches on h, m, n, r, b, d, p and q are characteristic of some calligraphic designs, and this combined with rounded bowls and tapering stems makes Nueva unique among roman typefaces; the accompanying italic is a true italic design. Nueva is extremely versatile and can take on a workload that ranges from fine book titles to billboards.
