Selfie by Maximiliano Sproviero (Lián Types foundry) is a cute geometric connected Sans Serif typeface with very pronounced calligraphic features. It’s inspired by the vintage neon signs seen in the small arcade shops ‘Galerías’ in Buenos Aires. In the words of Selfie designer:
“Their dark corridors take you back in time, and all of a sudden you are surrounded by cassettes, piercings, and old fashioned cloth. For some reason, all these shops use monolined geometric scripts. Surely, neon strings are easier to manipulate when letterforms have simple shapes.”
Selfie font family comes in four weights (Light, Regular, Black, and Printed) plus one bonus set of arrows, catchwords, and flags – Selfie Flags. Selfie’s clean rhythmic geometry outbursts in elegant swashes, creating filigree text patterns. Its curves are perfectly circular making Selfie easily used at different angles without distortions. Except over selfie pictures Selfie font family could spread its grace on packages, wedding invitations, magazines, posters, etc.
– Adding some lights/shadows between letters will for sure catch the eye of the viewer: Words will look as if they were made with tape/strings; so trendy nowadays.
– Try using Selfie at a 24.7º angle so that the slanted strokes become perfectly vertical.
– Having the decorative ligatures feature (dlig) activated is a good option to see letters dance.
– It is absolutely recommended to use this font with the standard ligatures feature (liga) activated. It makes letters ligate perfectly and also improves the space between words.
