Cabrito Didone: High contrast. Pure fun.
















A graceful kid if ever you’ve seen one, Cabrito Didone joins the Cabrito family of fonts--a family designed to provide young infants with clear recognition of letter forms. The original letters were released as part of the children’s book about fonts, The Clothes Letters Wear.

Now, this latest addition brings a new Didone flavor to the table. But don’t judge the book by its cover. While Didones can be stodgy in the way they convey luxury, this stubborn goat of a Didone bucks the elite stereotypes with its high-contrast, carefree fun, taking a more calligraphic direction than most. Cabrito Didone joins structure and handwriting to create a flowing balance of both characteristics. These are seen in elements like its unique serifs, which give the sense of ink pooling slightly at the points, drawn with a sharp nib. It makes for a unique combination of functional and friendly with a slight hint of formal.

Cabrito Didone supports OpenType features and is packaged with upright obliques, alternates, ligatures, old-fashioned figures, and compact caps. Preview any and all of these features in the interactive PDF manual. The family member font also includes glyphs for 72 languages; over 600 glyphs per font await. Cabrito Didone is an excellent choice for websites as well as flyers and packaging. Like Cabrito, which is currently used by a number of visible brands, Cabrito Didone is also a great option for defining your brand.

Grab a taste of the Cabrito Didone flavor for your latest creation. Its 46 well-designed fonts give you plenty of easy-going, highly readable options to work with as you craft your design. Be sure to try it alongside any of its complimentary family members, too: Sans, Semi, and Inverto as well as the original Cabrito itself.

Grenale, a haute couture sans-serif.

The elegant Grenale brings a new look to the classic didone. This shimmering sans-serif family with its mild deco shades alters the typical serifs and terminals of the classic style to form a gracefully eye-catching, high-contrast font.

While high-contrast, sans serif forms tend to disappear in the copy, Grenale’s meticulously designed features exhibit proper balance in the spacing and in the thorough improvements of its contours. The rigorous consideration given these details leaves a delicate typeface that doesn’t get washed out in certain applications. Its pure, polished, geometric structure has a glamorous sensitivity, drawing heavily from the inspiration of the haute couture influence.

Grenale’s thin weights are simple but vibrant--elegant forms that naturally lend themselves to high fashion journals, high-end branding, and other five star applications. With added energy and power, the thicker weights with their ink traps and optical compensation intensify the gravitas for a state…

Top Tips for using Chromatic Typefaces or Layered Fonts

Using Layered or Chromatic Type Have you seen those fancy new layered type styles that all the cool kids are using? Ever wonder how to use them most efficiently? Layered type is great when you want to set headlines in a application that screams for attention. It's fantastic when you want a retro or vintage feel or just want to add some depth and dimension to your work.

A Bit of History If you will forgive the pun, layered type is a multifaceted contemporary trend in type design. Layered type finds it's origins in woodtype, which came to the fore in the mid 1800s. Another implementation came in the time of Letraset. In the present day, we stack layers of type in a digital program and output the results, but in the past there was great deal of trial and error and less versatility. Some of the challenges of designing layered type, such as registration, are now mostly the domain of the designer of the layered type family.
