Scholtz Fonts

Scholtz Fonts, started by Anton Scholtz in 1997, specializes in “African flavor” fonts.

The foundry is based in Durban, South Africa, where the Zulu culture of the region has greatly influenced Anton’s font design. In his profession as a graphic designer, he became aware of how few available fonts were suitable for African inspired design.

He began to create his own fonts to enhance the work produced by his design company, and this branch of his design work has grown steadily in recent years.

Coral

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $17.00
Coral Coral

Coral had its origins in the font Leah. I had requests from users that I create a cursive version of Leah. (In a cursive font the letters are joined together as in handwriting). In the process of development it changed sufficiently that I decided to release it under its own name. Hence “Coral”.

Affable

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

3 fonts from $11.00
Affable Affable

An elegant, contemporary and quirky handwriting font inspired by fonts such as Satisfaction and Nothing. There are many handwriting fonts out there, almost all of them tending to highlight the individuality of a particular person’s handwriting. I wanted to go beyond this.

Aarde™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.00
Aarde™ Aarde™

This is the definitive standard African font. It combines wonderful readability with tremendous panache. The fact that it has a full character set (UPPER and lower case), all punctuation and all special characters, means that it can be used in just about any African design context. If you had only one African font in your arsenal, it would have to be Aarde Black.

Madrigalle

Albums

The Family:

Filigree

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.00
Filigree Filigree

Filigree, reminiscent of the delicate lace and jewelry produced in Europe in the 16th to 18th centuries, was inspired by the font Always, and by the way in which the threads (or filia) of the characters in Always intertwined.

Ability

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

6 fonts from $9.00
Ability Ability

Ability is a family of stylish and contemporary handwriting fonts that combine the vigor of hand-drawn fonts such as Affable with the elegance of fonts such as Blythe. What is unusual about Ability is that it enables a word to be formed from a group of letters in a variety of ways: not only the conventional linking of letters as in a cursive script or the placing of letters close to each other on a common baseline, but it uses the overlapping of the swashes and swirls that contribute to the individuality of the characters to integrate the letters into a single word.

Zest™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

3 fonts from $22.00
Zest™ Zest™

Zest is an informal brush script drawn with quick, thick brush strokes. While it is based on everyday handwriting, the expansive and easy flow of the script hides the care that has been given to the crafting of each character. In style it harks back to the hey-day of American lettering and calligraphy, yet it has a looseness that is thoroughly modern.

Art Nouveau SCF

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $21.00
Art Nouveau SCF Art Nouveau SCF

The Art Nouveau styles of the the turn of the 20th century (1890 - 1905) exhibited a bold approach to organic lines and lavish decoration. This new style was spread throughout the world and helped usher in a new era that led to modern art and design. Art Nouveau SCF is strongly influenced by the style of decoration and typography created by Rennie Mackintosh as well as the Art Nouveau movement in general (with particular reference to Gustave Klimt and Alphonse Mucha). However, it differs from much of the art nouveau typography in that it largely avoids the use of straight lines in its letter forms.

Gossamer™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.95
Gossamer™ Gossamer™

Gossamer is a delicate, wispy font, with extravagant caps and controlled, softly curved lower case characters. It is reminiscent of fantasy and fairy lore, and wonderfully evokes the magic of childhood.

Use Gossamer for Christmas cards, for wedding stationery, for cosmetics and clothing, for romance and enchantment.

Sprig

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

3 fonts from $19.00
Sprig Sprig

Sprig is a dynamic font that combines in-your-face chutzpah with contemporary brushstrokes. The character shapes are contained, yet give a feeling of casual, off the cuff ease. In some, subtle ways it pays its respects to the sign painters of the 30s and 40s

The font comes in three styles:

Pacific Script

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.95
Pacific Script Pacific Script

Pacific Script is a font inspired by an alphabet created by Howard Trafton in the 1930s. However, I felt it needed some changes to bring it to the cutting edge of 21st century font design.

African Textile™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.00
African Textile™ African Textile™

The African Textile font had two major influences. The pattern is derived from the bogolan cloths from Africa, originally made using a traditional dyeing technique from Mali that uses bogo or clay as prime dye material.

The character shapes are largely based on the Tabwa font.

Blythe

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

5 fonts from $16.00
Blythe Blythe

Blythe is a stylish and contemporary handwriting font that captures the elegant hand of the 50s with the immediacy of handwriting fonts such as Affable.

There are many handwriting fonts out there, many of which border on being grungy and irregular. This font combines beauty with individuality and panache.

Aqua Casual

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $18.00
Aqua Casual Aqua Casual

The script equivalent of the cool, header font.

This font is essentially embedded, by its styling, in the 20th century. Inspired by fragments of some pre-20th century script fonts, I modernized it and added lower case characters. The result captures the cool elegance of the 1920s & 30s, yet also embodies the free optimism of the 60s.

Arabesque

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $15.00
Arabesque Arabesque

Arabesque is a romantic, ornamental font, in which intertwining, flowing lines and generous loops enhance the beauty of the basic shapes. Arabesque successfully combines legibility with a decorative, sumptuous style. In its European interpretation it was also called “Moresque”.

Crostini™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $19.00
Crostini™ Crostini™

Crostini was designed as a fun-filled, vigorous brush script, originally intended for restaurant logos and menus. As it evolved, I realized that it was more versatile than I'd thought - great for feminine, girly media as well as for more “in your face” marketing. While the characters are bold and dramatic, they are also feminine and rounded.

Albums

3 fonts from $19.92
Silken Silken

Silken is a stylish and contemporary handwriting font that combines the elegance of fonts such as Zapfino with the immediacy of handwriting fonts such as Affable.

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $12.00
Doorn Doorn

In its loose, angular forms, it is reminiscent of thorn bushes dotting the immense Kalahari desert. Spiky and freeform, Doorn calls to mind the irregular hand-drawn lettering found on wooden signs outside small shops in tiny African villages.

Camy

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

10 fonts from $9.50
Camy Camy

I wanted to create a “handwriting” font which could be used professionally. I have often needed such a font with a variety of weights and styles for a particular project and have had to resort to mixing fonts, creating a rather messy, amateur job. Camy is named for a little village in South West France where I did much of the initial work on this font.

Estravaganza is an elegant, finely crafted script, with an uneven, drizzled paint line. It has the delicacy of gossamer while boasting the extravagance of bold swashes and loops. Think "ballet-like femininity offset by the distressed paint drizzle of a jackson Pollock canvas."

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $19.95
Nocturne Nocturne

The font is based on an alphabet from a mid1920s art deco book. The original seemed to have tapering strokes but it was too small to be sure; I made all strokes parallel & orthogonal and slightly modified the original in a number of other ways to bring it into the 21st Century. The designers of the original were Paul Carlyle and Guy Oring.
