Find a font full of life and mystery marked by the simple strokes of the past. Explore Belda.



















Step into the beauty of Belda’s elegant form and discover the richness flowing from both its historic influence and its strong elements. At its heart, Belda's graceful style embodies the classical calligraphy of the Roman capital, best known from such Roman monuments as Trajan's Column. To lessen the possibility for error, the builders of these defining structures brushed their templates onto the marble before taking their first cuts from the expensive stone.

These simple strokes now mark a simple but wonderful path full of life and mystery. Beyond a copy of the past, Belda has grown from its roots to offer a brave, new world of potential through its still-simple structure.

The new design strongly contrasts thickness and stroke. Its delicate shape, curves and sharp serifs provide a unique style of harmony and beauty. The resulting balance? The lighter weight design remains subtle and elegant, while the combination in its bolder counterparts provides an intense luster and sparkle, pulling the reader’s eye to the font’s captivating features.

A quick look beyond its surface of standard forms also reveals Belda has more layers to discover with OpenType small capitals, titling capitals and more.

With a wealth of weights and many widths beside, the font is capable of serving as both text and titling. While especially strong as a movie title or poster font, it’s also great for book jackets, advertising, and packaging. So start your journey with Belda. The possibilities to explore on this path are practically endless.
