talian type design master Aldo Novarese is well-known for his innovative sans serif designs which planted the seed for what is now understood to be the clean techno aesthetic. But in 1968, he tried designed a fantastic deco script called Elite. Novarese’s formula of simple soft curves and toned-down swashes makes for one of the most unique alphabets ever seen, not to mention one of the best flowing and most legible scripts. Our Fontella is its digital incarnation.
This is the kind of script that can ubiquitously add a touch of class to anything; a sign, a fridge magnet, a bumper sticker, a greeting card, a poster, a book cover, music artwork, magazine ads, newsletter headlines, etc. Digitized from original specimen and expanded with a few built-in alternates and ligatures, this font contains over 375 glyphs, and supports the majority of Latin languages. We named it after the famed soul singer Fontella Bass.
