Designed by Arthur Baker in 1989 for Agfa Compugraphic, Amigo is based on spontaneous pen lettering and an exaggerated calligraphic look. The letter shapes are especially unusual with stems that are wide at the top and taper to very narrow at the base.
You can’t reinvent the wheelWhen it comes to designing a sans serif, many designers stick closely to existing models.

Romantic, decorative Adios Script is one of Alejandro Paul’s most elaborate and technically refined faces to date. Inspired by designs in “how-to” commercial lettering guides of the 1940s, it has been refined and brought into the 21st century through a huge variety of ornate swash letterforms. The lowercase “h” alone offers 43 variants. Hundreds of ornamental ascenders and descenders allow a beautiful interplay of strokes and combinations, while avoiding overlaps or conflicts. Adios Script features a mind-boggling 1,470 characters in total, in OpenType format. Adios Script received a Certificate of Excellence from the Type Directors Club.

An award-winner and instant celebrity upon its release, Neil Bold became synonymous with magnified modernism for a whole generation. It was a jazz record packaging favorite, especially at Blue Note records, and made regular appearances on science fiction book covers during the last stretch of the genre's golden age.
What’s unique about the Belluccia font family (now in both Regular & Bold weights) is the ability to turn on various features (Ligatures, Stylistic Alternates, Contextual Alternates, Swashes, Old Style Figures) to auto-magically swap out letter sets with alternate versions, allowing you to easily type your messages, while creating the visual diversity that gives you the unique look of custom lettering.
