Typefaces are to the written word what different dialects are to different languages. Bring a touch of old-school finesse to your words with Herbert, a Didone display font designed by Danilo De Marco for K95 communication studio. Archaic in its approach, the font family is characterized by the strong contrast between thick and thin rods, which impart a sense of strength to the font along with beauty and elegance. The composition of the font makes it unsuitable for long runs of text as the legibility is affected in smaller font sizes. For the same reason, however, the typeface is highly suitable for headlines and graphic compositions that require less content, such as branding, posters, and signages.
Characterized by 4 different styles namely regular, italic, stencil and semi sans, the typeface remains true to its name – a homage to the famous American graphic designer Herb Lubalin – all thanks to its strong expressive and aesthetic connotations. All in all, Herbert provides you with a great opportunity to treat your content with the respect and creativity that it deserves, and truly deliver a well-crafted message with utmost grace and sophistication.
