About Hollyhock Font Family
Meet Hollyhock, a modern and messy calligraphy font with wild, tall letterforms that refuse to be tamed. Inspired by calligraphy the breaks the rules and hollyhocks that grow rebelliously where they please.
This font includes two full sets of capital letters… a set that is tall, energetic, and wild as well as a set a bit more tame and subdued. Open type features in this font include contextual alternates, fractions, ordinals, discretionary ligatures, and swashes. Use contextual alternates to add subtle swashes to the beginnings and ends of your letters. Use your open type swashes panel to use the many and various doodles, swirls, and swashes to manually add flare and flavor to your text. Or, install the separate Hollyhock Ornaments font to access the swashes and doodles more easily.
Most Diacritics included for various language support. Message me if there’s one you're not sure is included.
This font works best in OpenType aware software (ie. Adobe Applications) so that you can take advantage of its many features. Comes as two .otf (OpenType font) files.
See this tutorial for more on how to add the various swashes and doodles to this font!
About Angie Makes
Located in the flatlands of West Texas, Angie Baldelomar started her foundry in 2010 with a desire to create beautiful graphics, fonts and website templates, all with a feminine, girly aesthetic. “Making Fonts is something that I get particularly excited about because I’m always amazed by the creative ways I see folks use them,” she says.
Her first font on MyFonts was Canoe; an all caps font perfect for any project that needs a homemade touch. “With Canoe, I was just learning how to produce a quality font and I wanted something super simple that still looked hand-drawn. It was a great font to begin with, and the feedback I received when I made it was super positive, and I still get a smile on my face every time it’s purchased.”
The self-taught designer’s hand-drawn designs are simultaneously rustic and elegant: two adjectives that aren’t often used in the same sentence, but when they are, seamlessly describe her whimsical, chic typefaces. Her bestselling fonts include Matchmaker and Hollyhock; a modern and messy calligraphy font composed of wild, tall letterforms.
Angie also specializes helping her customers launch their brand with her collection of Cute WordPress Themes, Premade Logos, and Girly Graphics: check out her site to see everything she has to offer! “I have more ideas than time in the day to complete them,” she says. “Expect to see some on-trend goodness in the future.”
