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.

Debs™ Debs™

Debs was inspired by a thank you note sent from one of my friends to another. The recipient liked
the handwriting so much that he passed the note on to me after having asked permission from Debs,
the writer. I enjoyed the vigor and looseness of the handwriting, as well as admiring its legibility and style.

Melodica Melodica

Melodica was so named because the characters dance easily across the page as music wafts across a room. The font was designed to meet the need of designers that need clarity, sensuousness, a suggestion of the oddball, and a modicum of humor.

Excalibur SCF™ Excalibur SCF™

Let it be known that this font is named for Excalibur, King Arthur’s Magic Sword. The font is derived from a note that Arthur hastily penned to his Queen, Guinevere, during a lull in one of his many battles against the Saxons. Arthur’s armour was so hefty that he could not easily seat himself, and so to pen his letter to Guinevere he plunged his legendary sword Excalibur into the marshy soil on which he had been fighting and thereby steadied his writing hand with the hasp of his magical sword.

Spaza™ Spaza™

In parts of Africa, in the poorer, rural and peri-urban areas there are many small shops or convenience stores which are called “Spaza” shops. The owners of these shops often don't have access to commercial signwriting and write their signs themselves. The font “Spaza” is based on these hand-lettered signs. This lettering has a refreshing simplicity and spontaneity, yet retains great legibility.

I have named the font “Makonde” after an tribal group in southeast Tanzania and northern Mozambique that is well known for their intricate and semi-realistic wood carvings. The patterns that decorate the Makonde font remind me of the Makonde wood carvings.

African fonts are characterised by design considerations that differ from those of Europe and the Americas. At one extreme we have a relaxed and casual approach to life that values the quality of each moment in life far more than people do in the west.

Tabwa™ Tabwa™

The design of the Tabwa font was inspired by the font Neuland designed by Rudolf Koch in 1923.

Rather than attempting to re-create his font in a digital form as so many others have done, I have tried to capture the “spirit” of his font and merge this with the spirit of Africa.

1 font from $19.00
African Gold African Gold

The name African Gold is associated with Johannesburg, the “City of Gold”; (the Zulu name for Johannesburg is eGoli).

The font was so named for two reasons: the intricate African patterns within the characters of the font suggest the shafts and tunnels of a gold mine, and, as with a gold mine, the richness lies within.

Parchemin Parchemin

The name “Parchemin” is derived from the word in old English for “parchment.” Our modern word “parchment” changed its spelling to conform with French spelling practices during the French occupation of England. The font was created to suggest an informal but antique form of handwriting written on parchment with a quill pen. The scratchiness of the old quill pen is conveyed in the roughness of the characters. The font was loosely based on the font Queen.
