The constant geometric precision of screen-based design is enough to dehumanize any design project. The best way to counter that is with a typeface that screams "hand written!"
Alana Pro is an award winning typeface, having received the MyFonts Best Fonts of 2011, Ascender Fonts — Best Fonts of 2011, Typographica's Best of 2011, and 2012 Communication Arts awards.
Named for Worthington's little sister, the typeface oozes feminity and affection. It is inherently formal, but breaks out into spontaneous moments of playfulness, especially in some of the 341 alternates, that are so important to any handwriting font.
Alongside the standard characters, there are 62 ornaments providing some charming hand-drawn illustrations of leaves, flowers and birds.
Look closely and you'll see that all of the glyphs — characters and ornaments — have been treated to a rough, uneven edge giving the design a wonderfully earthy and wholesome feel. If you're working on a design for a healthfood shop, a yoga class, or even your local surf school, this is a great place to start your design.
You can add this tremedous font to your toolkit for just $14, that's an incredible saving of 71% off the full retail value. And for just $5 more you can grab the desktop and web versions. Head over to MightyDeals.com to take advantage of this offer right now.
