La CirrusCumulus est une typographie sans courbes, constituée de modules issus de différentes catégories de schémas. C’est une fonte hybride qui mélange deux styles. Les capitales, à l’envolée lyrique, ont des caractéristiques issues des typographies scriptes. Les italiques, sur certaines lettres, créent des rencontres plus ou moins heureuses, des arabesques et ligatures (selon les mots et l’interlettrage). Les bas-de-casse constituent une base plus calme, plus régulière à la lecture. Elle comporte une panoplie de glyphes qui permettent le dessin de figures, ainsi que plusieurs alternatives au point médian, constituant un système de ligatures à longueurs variables et des glyphes inclusifs et non-binaires.

In physics, the shower-curtain effect is the phenomenon in which a shower curtain gets blown inward with a running shower. The problem of the cause of this effect has been featured in Scientific American magazine, with several theories given to explain the phenomenon but no definite conclusion. As a second meaning, the fact that nearby phase front distortions of an optical wave are more severe than remote distortions of the same amplitude is called shower-curtain effect.
CirrusCumulus was designed without using curves (it's made-up of different modules inspired by "scientific" diagrams).
The schema; from the ancient greek «skhema» (way of being, form, figure, exterior, appearance, pretence) is a simplified representation used as a vector of communication and often codified or symbolized. It is a graphic representation reduced to the essential, where all information is given in a precise manner. A representation of the fundamental constituents of a complex object, including the functional relationships between these constituents.
