Lucca: lovely humanist sans
0

Hi Folks,

I just released my first font in MyFonts. It's a text sans. If it makes success, I'll make a Cyrilic. Hope you like it! Here is a description:

Inspired by Italian Renaissance fonts like Poliphilus, Blado, Centaur and Arrighi, Lucca presents a simple charm and a powerful classic feel. It is cute, friendly, clear and superbly readable.

Its low contrast provides Lucca a firm yet flexible substance, making it sensual and enticing. There’s a certain degree of abstraction in the precise endings, and the whole design was made to survive even in the harshest conditions, conserving its readability and beauty.

Love the arches in the Italic!

Congratulations on an absolutely wonderful typeface. I love the letterforms! (Although, the cant of the 5 seems a bit awkward.) I hope it does well for you. (Wish I could afford it!)
