Background

Ember is an informal script with a judicious sprinkling of ligatures that give it a flowing freehand liveliness. Neither overly formal and stuffy nor cheap and cheerful, Ember is elegant yet friendly, sophisticated yet approachable, fun and frivolous but stylish and well bred.

Designer Rian Hughes says that he felt he was “possibly channeling the spirit of Roger Excoffon”. Neither pastiche nor revival, Ember does seem to evoke the famous French designer’s trademark elegance.
