Uberschrift’s high contrast forms lend elegant beauty, luxury and romance to your designs and its specific more geometrical letterforms provide strength and power. Its foundational classical forms give the face a unique look that somehow inherits the contrast balance between thin and thick from Didone faces. Uberschrift looks strong and majestic, yet full of grace and a with delicate feminine flavor. The wide flat serifs work great for more steady compositions, while the thick vertical strokes just like in architecture act like columns. Very attractive, Uberschrift is designed for strong classical headlines, historical writings, book covers, logos and wine labels. Its key feature is the extensive set of discretionary ligatures which when used properly adds extra value to your typography and reveals the true beauty, charm and originality of Ubershcrift. Though designed only in uppercase it has enough character and uniqueness to stand alone or to be wisely combined with other typefaces – probably copperplate calligraphy like the newly released Nautica font by Resistenza is probably one of the best choices. You will also need an OpenType compatible software to have full access to all those amazing extra symbols like alternates, ligatures and multilingual characters. All in all Uberschrift is one of the best uppercase fonts we’ve recently spotted – strong, original and attractive, yet enough serious and authentic.
