About Salt & Spices Pro Font Family
Salt&Spices Pro is a welcome addition to the ever popular modern calligraphy genre. Digitizing the many handwritten samples into a fully functional connected script was done with great precision, carefully guarding the authentic look and feel of vintage dip pen calligraphy.
Salt&Spices Pro is a very versatile 9 font family, consisting of 3 casual styles: Regular, Bold and Shadow. With 587 glyphs each, they offer great flexibility in customizing words and phrases to suit your personal taste. For instance: the appearance of initial and terminal letters can be customized using the glyph pallet. Contextual alternates, Swashes and Stylistic sets give you the ability to replace spaces by 3 alternate connecting spaces or add swashes to initial/terminal letters. Double letter ligatures help sustain the natural flow of handwriting.
In addition to the 3 calligraphic family members 3 SmallCaps Sans styles and 3 SmallCaps Serif styles were added. They all have 435 glyphs and match very well because they were designed using the same vintage nib. Each of the styles can add great variation to your designs and they supplement and support each other perfectly.
Add exceptional language support to all that and you have the perfect ingredient to spice up even the most demanding design project.
Salt & Spices Pro
Hanneke Classen started Fontforecast in 2013 as a label of Storm Creative Consultancy, an advertising agency where she works to this day as a graphic and type designer. “Working with fonts as a designer day in, day out made me curious about the process of designing fonts,” she says. “As soon as I dived into the ins and outs of font design, I was hooked.” It was in that same year that she finished work on her first two font families: Tyfoon Sans and Tyfoon Script. “The concept was to combine two very different designs in such a way that they work together well. By using the same measurements as a skeleton for both font families they became interchangeable, even in the same sentence, without causing leading problems.”
“The concept of making font families consisting of different designs especially made to complement and support each other was relatively new at the time Fontforecast started,” Hanneke says. “My aim is to give all of my font families a certain something extra.” This drive to push the envelope gave way to bestselling typefaces Chameleon, a design kit of 16 fonts intended to bring a personalized touch to any project, and Salt & Spices Pro, a modern collection of 9 calligraphy fonts that brings to life an authentic feel of vintage dip pen calligraphy.
There is much to look forward to in the future from the Netherland-based foundry. Marloes Versluys, an Amsterdam-based art director, graphic designer and type designer, is joining the foundry and working with Hanneke to continue making a wide variety of typefaces perfect for any, and all projects.
