Free Font Friday: Setta
Handwritten script fonts continue to be incredibly popular right and used widely for a range of project types from branding to editorial, brochure, and poster design. Setta, a free script typeface, is on par in quality to many premium ones and a good addition to your design kit.
Setta, designed by Ian Mikraz, is a contemporary calligraphy font with a charming and natural elegance. The letter forms have swashes that resemble curlicues and the letters connect with a backwards and forward tilting flow — giving the font design motion and energy.
Setta is a fully-featured open type font and has 244 glyphs and 69 alternate characters with stylistic alternates and standard ligatures. Setta would be a good choice for personal, boutique, and gourmet food for beverage and restaurant and cafe branding projects. It also would be a good choice for invitation and stationery design.
