La Chic font
La Chic font by the Canadian graphic designer Cindy Kinash (Cultivated Mind foundry) is a handwritten beautiful vintage Serif font family, full of creative spirit and potential. It consists of 12 fonts including 6 ornamental sets and catchwords and an extended character set of 575 glyphs covering a range of languages and alternate versions of letterforms for display use.
La Chic font family offers a full spectrum of OpenType features providing opportunities for unlimited creative applications – from posters and headlines to package designs and signage. Some of them include standard ligatures, stylistic alternates, swash alternates, frames, catchwords, and many others.
La Chic’s Ligature feature offers the standard fi and fl ligatures, as well as ff, ffi and ffl ligatures. La Chic Pro’s Stylistic Alternates feature adds a little more flair to the mix with mildly flourished Capitals, scripted so that when typeset in all caps, only the first Capital will be flourished to preserve legibility and avoid collisions.
La Chic Pro’s Stylistic Alternates feature includes automatic Initial & Final lowercase letterforms that will automatically swap to avoid any letter collisions as you type.
La Chic’s Swash Alternates feature takes the flair even further with elegantly flourishing Capitals, also scripted so that when typeset in all caps, only the first Capital will be flourished to preserve readability and avoid unsightly collisions. The complete lowercase is also substituted for a flourishing lowercase set.
By enabling both the Stylistic Alternates and Swashes features, automatic Initial & Final lowercase letterforms that will automatically swap to avoid any letter collisions as you type including the flourishing swashes lowercase.
All features have Special Titling Swap-Out Ligatures for the following words “and”, “of”, “at”, “from”, “by”, “and the” when typed in Parenthesis (whether typeset in Capitals or lowercase).
All features also include a small batch of Special Long Flourish characters enabled by typing an underscore after each letter (IE: H_, L_, t_ ,and w_).
And there’s even more: 51 additional letters not blended into any of the Opentype features are accessible by way of a Glyph map in compatible programs and/or system options to personalize your La Chic designs even further.
