About Rivea Font Family


Rivea is two-font, hand-lettered script family designed to mimic real calligraphy. Each font dances along a natural, variable baseline and has a distinctive slant. Long, thin upstrokes contrast with rich downstrokes in a style reminiscent of "wet noodle" pen writing. Each Opentype font includes eight different ampersands, a swash feature that automatically substitutes beginning & end of word letters, a set of alternate letters, old style numerals, arbitrary fractions, six common "word-art" prepositions and six common honorifics. All Opentype features have been duplicated in Stylistic Sets for Microsoft Word users. To enable alternate ampersands, simply turn on the contextual alternates feature and type &1, &2, &3, etc. Opentype coding automatically substitutes the new "and".

About Magpie Paper Works

Nestled in rural North America, you’ll find the farmhouse that’s home to Magpie Paper Works. If the foundry’s owner and sole designer, Jessica McCarty, isn’t tucked inside designing typefaces, she’s more than likely out chicken wrangling and apple picking. Jessica left behind agency life in 2010, opting instead to create her own studio. Her first font, Saissant, a rough, kinetic calligraphy script, was a non-traditional typeface that was almost instantly very popular. “I created Saissant,” she says, “because I was working on a client’s project and needed a font that looked truly handmade and wild, only to discover that there weren’t really any options available at the time. I figured that if I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I should make it instead. The rest was history!” The self-taught designer approaches each project with a strong background in calligraphy and typographic illustration; a toolset that brings a hand-lettered feel to each of her typefaces. This is especially true for Jessica’s best selling font, Ondise: a calligraphy font with robust Opentype features and a warm, fresh and charming vibe. Jess says that she’s seen her fonts used in everything from logos and wedding invitations to West Elm catalogs and even in the movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby. “It’s wonderful to have full creative freedom,” she says, “and I adore collaborating directly with clients to help them get the most out of their font purchases.”
