This elegant calligraphic logotype was created as part of a typeface development project. Drawing inspiration from the opulent style of 19th Century hand lettering, the overall style has been updated for a more contemporary feel.
The ornate aesthetic of the 1800s has been toned down to create a more uncluttered and clean script. Features such as the slightness of the italic angle, generous letter spacing and low contrast between thick and thin strokes aid legibility. While the addition of subdued capital flourishes and small x-height add a sense of luxury and energy and very much define this script as an ornate display face.
