Free Font Friday: Syne Tactile
by Taylor Slattery | February 12, 2021
Syne Tactile is a handwritten font created by Bonjour Monde and Lucas Descroix. It bears little resemblance to most handwritten typefaces and for good reason. Part of a larger type family, Syne tactile is one of two experimental typefaces meant to complement their sans serif basis, Syne Regular. Using Syne Regular as a basis to build upon, Syne Tactile was created by using the trackpad of a laptop as a means of digital calligraphy.
It would be a great choice for those tertiary elements of a design that are really only read by those who are truly interested. It’s strange, decorative letterforms open the door to a wide range of experimentation. Syne Tactile is available in a single weight and you can find it for free here.
