STF_ELEGANZA (Tight) -  Contemporary geometric humanist sans
A font style, that while simplified by old tradition, saw new light by modern sophistication.

It comes in a solid medium weight that is very suitable for body style text with good readability, But it does perfect clear headlines or advertisement as well.


The goal was to make a clean but somewhat more contemporary and playful take on a 'Grotesque' sans-style.

In an attempt to break away from the traditional trend of Grotesque type designs which evolved more around pure geometric shapes and aim for perfect circular, triangular or square shaped letterforms, and in return give many of them a somewhat harsch and featureless mechanical appearance. I choose to achieve the opposite, aiming for a softer, friendlier and more humanized feeling instead.


Dimensions: (in grid units)
X-Height:              1 .625
Cap-Height:          1 .875
Type Size:              2 .375
Em:                        3 .5

Brick Size filter:     2 : 2


This version is the 'Tight'-style in the 'ELEGANZA' typeface family. It has a slight compressed effect on its vertical axis that sets this apart from typical proportioned faces. Tightening the Leading and allowing greater quantities of lines per inch.

I hope you like it...

The glass slipper in the sample makes me think of the Walt Disney character Cinderella. Very nice font!
