About Bergamot Font Family

Bergamot was inspired by vintage apothecary labels, but this font is actually quite modern in both style and effects. It features all caps plus 2 sets of alternates (so, 4 total variations for each letter). The coolest part… they intermingle randomly as you type! Ok, so it’s not exactly random, but that’s the easiest way to explain what you'll see. The letters are actually coded to rotate with their respective alternates. This effect is both useful or can be purely for fun! Let’s talk about the useful part for a sec… Repeating characters are often a dead giveaway that a font is being used. And sometimes we don't want that, right? We want to give the illusion that our design has been custom hand-lettered for a particular project… and can't be recreated by another. That’s exactly what this font aims to do. The randomizing effect is built into the Contextual Alternates feature and will likely be “on” automatically in your chosen program. Alas, even random doesn't guarantee that like characters won't appear in close proximity. So for those of you with access to the “Stylistic Alternates” feature, easily change repeated letters that are near each other simply by turning this feature “on”. Voila! Custom…hand…lettering. Bergamot also features separate files for Frames & Ornaments. Check them out below.

About Emily Lime

A southern girl who loves a challenge, Emily Conners is a self-taught type-designer whose foundry has made a big splash in the type industry in a short amount of time. The South Carolina-based designer started her career in technology sales. But after a while, she says, "I'd acquired enough graphic design skills during my career to make me dangerous. So I took a leap and started learning everything I could about design. As my business grew, so did my love for fonts.” Her foundry, Emily Lime, released its first font on MyFonts in 2011. Since then, the one-woman company has had three typefaces featured in our Rising Stars Newsletters, including hits like Peoni Pro. Other fonts of hers that have seen success include Jacques & Gilles and Carolyna Pro Black; both of which have called the Best Sellers list home for over a year. A self-acclaimed “fontaholic” (as she refers to herself in her Creative Characters interview), she has made fonts in a range of styles, but capricious scripts are what she does best. Her typeface Bombshell Pro has proven this. Not only has the typeface reined the Best Sellers list since its debut, but it has also been featured in Rising Stars and was celebrated as one of MyFonts Most Popular Fonts of 2012. The designer says that she typically sees her fonts used on websites, logos, or included in printed items like invitations.
