The project was funded by Google, being led by Mooniak, a collaborative collective of designers based in Colombo Sri Lanka with the cooperation of Mr. Pushpananda Ekanayake, the designer of the FM Abhaya font and Sol Matas as the Latin designer. For Moonaik, Pathum Egodawatta and Ayantha Randika contributed to the project in consulting, managing and Opentype engineering.
The Latin set was inspired by the style of the original Sinhala, with the notable inherent contrast in between thick and thin strokes, was modified to tally with the visualization logics of Latin typefaces. The ductus references according to the lines of a Didone typeface add some Sinhala forms to certain terminations.
