Corvel Software was created by Simon Cozens to distribute his software projects related to type design and typesetting.

Our English word “curve” comes from the Latin curvus, after the beak of the crow (corvus). A corbel, also from the word meaning “crow”, is an architectural bracket which takes the weight of the construction above it.

The crow’s beak is a natural symbol for my software, which both manipulates mathematical curves and aims to support and underpin the work of you, the designer.
