Aphrodite Slim Pro font
Aphrodite Slim Pro font is not just a lighter version of its sister Aphrodite Pro. Aphrodite Slim has duplicated the quantity of characters of its partner, and that means more than 500 new glyphs, reaching a total of more than 1000.
More delicate and meticulous, Aphrodite Slim Pro font is once more a new typography with deep calligraphic ideals: We immersed ourselves into the world of each calligraphy ductus and each calligraphy masters by studying from decoration to lettering books.
This was the key for the logic of Aphrodite Slim’s behavior.
The new concept of Aphrodite Slim was to join diverse styles of calligraphy in one in order to achieve an autonomous expressiveness, in fact, this is what calligraphy aims to, and we agreed to bring those ideals to the world of typography: It is justifiable to be inspired in hundred-year-old calligraphies, but it is even better if the results you obtain have a plus. A personal plus. During the creation process we were wondering whether it was possible to mix certain strokes of such rigid styles as uncial, (Li·n’s favourite style), with strokes of the copperplate, (Sav’s favourite style), and also to take and mix cualities of cancelleresca cursiva, formata and moderna; finally giving our creation a roman-transition italic look.
Aphrodite Slim Pro font takes this ideal. The font counts with a wide range of glyphs that seem not to be satisfied with its more primitive form and prefer to extreme their parts to be decorative.
It also existed masters of calligraphy like José de Casanova of XVII Century, who, with a magnificant skill and a really personal mark, had the particularity of ligating words that were actually separated with spaces.
Aphrodite Slim Pro font is the most complete variable.
It includes more than 1000 glyphs.
Thanks to the Open-Type programming, it counts with a easy way to change/alternate glyphs if the application in which the font is used supports this.
