Orbe Pro font
Orbe Pro is a typeface based on Lombardic Majuscules. Lombardic letters have always been well received thru the centuries because of their beauty and originality perfectly balanced with normal legibility. If we get back to their roots we’ll discover that they are actually influenced by Roman Capitals and Uncials with elegant decorative finish. Orbe Pro as a typographic interpretation of Lombardic Majuscules is perfect for strong historical titles where designers need medieval style and where authenticity is a great benefit. Orbe Pro font could be used not only as display font but for long fully justified texts – because of its exceptional beauty we recommend to use it in mid-size or larger sizes. Orbe Pro will perform perfectly on textured vintage papers as well as when printed on very thick carton with letterpress machine and deep embossing. It will also amaze you when printed with different hot-foils – because of its high contrast and well-balanced details it will look awesome on wine label or vintage book cover.
