LiebeDoris font by Ulrike Wilhelm (LiebeFonts type foundry) is a hi-quality hand-painted font family of four different styles. Inspired by a workshop with iconic American sign painter Mike Meyer, Ulrike of LiebeFonts set out to create a versatile, lovely typeface for sign painting that looks less like a font but rather like the letters on a custom, hand-painted showcase sign. LiebeDoris font takes the best of the two worlds: the beauty of all-American sign painting and the meticulous craft of German engineering.
Each and every letter in each of the four different styles in LiebeDoris font was hand-painted on large sheets of paper with a brush and ink, then carefully transferred for digital typesetting. So rather than being one typeface with different weights, think of LiebeDoris as a package of four individual designs that perfectly fit together.
LiebeDoris font family comes with all the Advanced OpenType bells and whistles: every letter in this all-caps font comes in four variations, so that two of the same letters typed in a row won’t look the same, giving a truly handmade charm. (This feature requires layout software or a word processor with OpenType support.) And if you do have a storefront or a restaurant menu to prettify with LiebeDoris, you will love the integrated collection of store-themed catchwords like “FREE”, “NEW”, and “SALE”.
