Background

Charles Borges de Oliveira has developed one of his largest typefaces to date. Featuring 644 alternate letters, 98 ligatures, 8 flourishes and 6 catchwords, Desire offers an expansive set of options to create logos, headlines and titling. It is well suited for book covers, editorial, packaging, advertising, branding and more. From period style and Victorian to modern and elegant, Desire is strong and stately yet elegant and decorous. Some of the alternate uppercase forms feature delicate line flourishes creating a subtle background for additional letters to rest — the result is an intertwining and beautifully flourished design. Unique ligatures go beyond function and add eye catching flair and style.
