About Dear Dolores Font Family

Dear Dolores has had its name from the latin word dolorem, meaning sorrow or grief. When I started working on this display font I found myself trying it out using the latin requiem texts. The capitals somehow sat well with the monumental and solemn words of mourning. The broken hairlines suggested stone cuttings where the fine details had been worn down and obliterated over time and it felt at home in a churchyard or in a monument park.

Adding lowercase gave the font a more personal and friendly appearance and opened up new possibilities for use. The name itself is a fictional message to someone long missed or perhaps lost too soon.

Dear Dolores comes in a cut and an uncut version where the fine details are left intact.

Both are excellent for headlines or memorable quotes.

About Samuelstype

Samuelstype Design is run by Hans Samuelson, freelance graphic designer specialized in package design and typography. Having started out as a calligrapher, he has been custom fonts for major productions since 1995. ”In the beginning, drawing fonts was the ultimate design project; it grew out of my desire to draw letters and unless it was a commission, I was free to do whatever I wanted and take as long as I wished. Also, the problem-solving mentality required to match it all up in the end suited me perfectly. Creating a font design means creating a toolbox for further creativity; It is a finished product which is interesting in itself as well as a means and a tool for further creativity. As time has moved on, I can now find the freedom of limitations less inspiring and prefer a commission where the boundaries are clear and I can get right to creative problemsolving”.
