Forte font family


Designed by an Austrian commercial artist who was trained as a compositor and later taught typography and drawing in Vienna. The idea for this script face came from the study of plants, individual letterforms being inspired by the long stems and furry heads of the reed. Forte is a strong design which contrasts well with sans serif faces and classical modern types. Use in advertising, flyers and labels.
