"Canela ,defying classifications."

Type designers find categorization helpful, to telegraph the traditions that their newest creations are meant to insert themselves into, even when those connections are somewhat tenuous in the interpretation. However, some typefaces defy easy classification, synthesizing influences from different genres and historical periods, occupying ambiguous spaces between cleanly defined categories. Canela, designed by Miguel Reyes, is such a typeface.
