About this font family
Refresh was inspired and partly based on handwritten text from advertisements for a popular cola-based soft drink from the 1950s. I designed the missing characters in the handwriting style of the original.
The Refresh family comes in three styles:
- Lite- possibly the most elegant of the three styles -- use at larger sizes for greater legibility;
- Med -of intermediate weight - more legible than Lite;
- Blak - for bolder statements and best readabilty. More…
Refresh, with its three styles, is ideal for any display work needing a feminine, handwritten effect. Use it for product branding, book covers, invitations, greeting cards where you're looking for charm and movement.
Refresh has not been designed to be used with capital letters placed next to one another: it is not advisable to use text in “ALL CAPS”. The best effects for headings and subheads are obtained with an initial upper case letter followed by lower case characters. If you are using upper and lower case then it is not necessary to use kerning.
Refresh contains over 250 characters - (upper and lower case characters, punctuation, numerals, symbols and accented characters are present). It has all the accented characters used in the major European languages.
