About this font family
Amarone is a spiky calligraphic display typeface with some old fashioned flavour. It was designed by Carl Crossgrove, and includes an extensive set of swash caps which allow for extra drama where needed.
Crossgrove wrote each of Amarone’s letters by hand using pen and rough paper, and has retained some of this visual texture in the final digital design. The typeface works well at small sizes, but when used at larger sizes this texture comes to the fore. Amarone’s elegant, formal character can be modified with its swash caps, which allow the typeface to move from prim and ordered to wildly expressive. More…
Amarone lends itself well to packaging, posters and editorial usage – or in any environment where designers need to evoke times gone by.
The Amarone font features an extensive character set with support for over 130 languages, and a range of OpenType typographic features including ligatures, initial and terminal forms, figures, fractions and swashes.
