CirrusCumulus was designed without using curves; it's made-up of different modules inspired by scientific diagrams. CirrusCumulus is also a hybridization of two styles: it has a lineal-style lowercase set, as well as a script-like uppercase set, while some glyphs adopt italic forms which produce unusual combinations, arabesques and ligatures. CirrusCumulus includes a large panel of characters that can be used to draw figures, shapes or patterns, a variable ligature system, and many non-binary and inclusive glyphs.

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.
