A Fashion-Inspired Variable Serif Font
Capellini is a fashion-inspired variable serif font with high contrast and extremely narrow widths, including corresponding Italics by the new Berlin type foundry Show Me Fonts. Capellini is perfect for elevating your logos, posters, branding, and packaging. Its design DNA is derived from one of the logo sketches that Bernd, the founder of Show Me Fonts, drew for the Berlin-based video artist Astrid Gleichmann. He saw the potential in that particular sketch and began to explore the extremes of condensed proportions in a compressed, high contrast serif typeface. Evoking the essence of the classic Didone genre, Capellini takes it up a notch with its expressive character and uncompromising style. It can perfectly fit into the format of a vertical Instagram story with its narrow proportions and variable width. Keep an eye on Capellini Numero1, where the vertical stems give it the appearance of noodles neatly arranged in a pasta box.
