Type Gallery – ITC Ballerino

Font Designer: Victor Solt
Vienna designer Viktor Solt has a love affair with handwriting. “Usually,” he says, “when I start with a specific calligraphic style I take some historic specimens and try to integrate their main features into my own handwriting.” Although there are hints of various 18th-century calligraphic styles in ITC Ballerino™ it was not based on any historical model. The swash ascenders and descenders on the lowercase are all slightly different; this and the rough texture of the edges gives ITC Ballerino a distinctly hand-written feel. The swash caps are meant to be used only in conjunction with the lowercase not to be combined with each other.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
