Galea is a slightly condensed serif typeface with long extenders.

Its elongated proportions and graceful terminals seek to bring elegance to any layout. It is a display face that works well at large sizes in editorial contexts as a headline, titling or introduction to a text. Galea was designed by Isabel Urbina Peña while at Cooper Union’s Type@Cooper Extended Program, 2012 and released in 2014.

Galea obtained an Honorable Mention from the Fine Press Book Association in the Text Family Category, 2013. Also, it is featured in the book "Playing with Type: 50 Experiments" by Lara McCormick, Rockport Press and on Behance's Typography Served.


Laureate is a revival from a robust, flared sans with short extenders.

Originally cut by the Keystone Type Foundry in Philadelphia, PA, in the early 1900s and used for titles and large headers. Digitized by Isabel Urbina Peña while at Cooper Union’s Type@Cooper Extended Program, 2012.
