Bodoni Classic redesigned and enhanced to praise the original
Felicità is based on the design of my »Ellida« font-family. It was designed with »happiness« in mind. Therefore I used extremely high contrast between the down- and upstrokes, this gives the fonts a lively, happy appearance. I designed two different basic fonts, that can be mixed or used straight (this is number two). Then I designed two different sets of Initials (Initials), middle- and end-swings and added a set of embellishment wings and flowers. Since not everybody uses Open-Type-savy software I designed single fonts to be mixed. Ellida is suited very well to design short captions & for all kinds of invitations, but as you can see here it can used for longer copy as well just give it enough line spacing. Enjoy!
FranklinGothicHandDemi is part of a series of hand-drawn fonts from way back in time – before computers changed the way we worked.
When I was in advertising – before computers – a very time consuming part of my daily work was sketching headlines. I used to be able to sketch headlines in Franklin Gothic, Times, Futura, Helvetica and several scripts.
