Maname is a versatile typeface family made of nine compatible instances for multiscript publishing in Sinhala, Tamil and Latin. The family contains text and title styles in Latin, Sinhala and Tamil; a secondary text style for Sinhala and Latin italic style. The Sinhala and Tamil design explore the possibilities of novel stroke modulation, drawing inspiration from a variety of sources from early 19th century. Rather than providing predefined relationships between the styles and scripts, Maname intends to provide a family of compatible components with greater flexibility for typographers.
