As Dave Crossland says:
The Cantarell typeface family was designed during my Masters study of
Typeface Design in the Department of Typography at the University of
Reading, England. All students' work is showcased at

My typeface is a contemporary Humanist sans serif designed for
on-screen reading; in particular, reading web pages on an HTC Dream
mobile phone.
HTC Dream mobile phone

This device runs Google Android and therefore has a web browser
supporting the exciting new web fonts feature known as @font-face. As
my very first typeface design, the typeface has many faults, yet it
achieves the goal of improving readability on this device.

Each font file currently contains 391 glyphs, and fully support the
following writing systems: Basic Latin, Western European, Catalan,
Baltic, Turkish, Central European, Dutch and Afrikaans. To date, Pan
African Latin has only 33% glyph coverage.

Since the design was tested mainly when displayed on-screen at small
sizes, the printed output (especially of the bold and oblique) does
not work well. I hope to publish a final release that is tuned to the
needs of printing in the future.

This shortcoming highlights my motivation for undertaking a study of
typeface design: I believe it is essential that when we use digital
tools, our freedom to use, understand, modify and share these tools is
respected. Otherwise, when the tool does not work in the way that we
need, we will be unable to fix it.

These fonts were developed using only such software, mainly FontForge.
Typeface designs are tools too, so therefore these font files are
licensed in a way that respects your freedom — you are invited to
extend them to meet your needs, such as to add the glyphs missing from
your own writing systems, under the terms of the SIL Open Font Licence
