About African Shield Font Family

African Shield is named for the cow-hide shields used by Zulu warriors. The shield was an essential part of the weaponry of the Zulu Nation. In the days of the great King Shaka, every Zulu warrior was armed with a shield, one or more throwing assegais (type of spear) and a stabbing spear. The high-contrast design of the shield has inspired a font that translates into exciting graphic designs.

About 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.
