Venture™ font family

Designed by Hermann Zapf in 1969

About Venture™ font family

Venture reflects Hermann Zapf's own handwriting; it was originally written with a Japanese felt pen. Just as with his Noris Script typeface, Hermann Zapf desired to preserve the rough outline of the handwritten forms in the final drawings. Unlike many script faces, there are no connecting strokes in Venture, making the design feel more open, and perhaps a bit more like a printing type. Venture was made for the Linofilm photocomposition system and released in 1969. Similar faces with rough outlines are Ruling Script, Papyrus, and Galahad, but the typefaces with the closest resemblances are Hermann Zapf's own Palatino Sans and Palatino Sans Informal. These share the same underlying design harmony and informal nature.
