Metairie’s (sometimes exaggerated) scrawled letterforms play on the colorful world of calligraphy to bring you a fully developed personality of its own. Inspired by elixirs and pharmaceuticals of the 1800s, this design has forms that dig down deep to the soul. It brings a unique, vibrant feel for your next message. More…
The typeface supports all major Latin languages, and the expanded OpenType capabilities let you slide elements easily and quickly into your design. Metairie also includes a number of distressed options.
Improv a bit, too, with Metairie’s decorative ornaments, variations on the fleur de lis. Ornaments and tails are accessed through the glyph palette or using the Swash function. An extensive set of ligatures gives you more options for humanizing the handwriting on the page.
Then take it up a notch by using the glyph palette to find the perfect solution for project. You have full access to this amazing capability with InDesign, Illustrator, QuarkXpress and similar software. We recommend that you explore what this font can offer by using the glyph palette.
