I shared one of Debi Sementelli‘s fonts, Dom Loves Mary, a few months back and she just released another beauty called Cantoni! I just love using her fonts, they are so much fun! And once again, Debi is offering a huge discount to Ciera Design readers! Cantoni is 40% off with code “cieradesigns” so go grab it while this offer lasts!
The Cantoni font family is a hand lettered font with a variety of standard and alternate characters that play together well and has a total of 1265 glyphs, wow! Lots of additional features are also included, like roman numerals, fractions, ordinals, ornate and old style numbers, greek symbols, a set of flourishes, ornaments and DIY wedding words and images.
Named after my large Italian family, the unique variety of letters based on my own fluid upright style of brush lettering, reminds me of every family I know. There are creative and conservative siblings, crazy in a good way cousins, affable aunts and corny joke telling uncles who somehow come together and form one cohesive unit.
In the same way, using the Open Type features to insert a “wild t”, begin a name with a “flashy f” or end a word with a “rambling r”, the font comes to life. The party starts. The fun begins. And soon they’re all laughing and dancing up and down the baseline. Like a family gathering to celebrate a special occasion, there is a palpable sense of joy expressed through the letters and images, not unlike the sharing of good food, memorable stories and lots of laughter. - Debi Sementelli
