Background

Michael Gills, formerly a resident designer at Letraset, created the Fling typeface in 1995. Fling’s letterforms are based on the Ronde—or round—script style from France. The design includes intricate and generous capital letters, which are contrasted with a more reserved lowercase letters. This allows for a sophisticated and elegant appearance in text.

Fling’s letterforms are highly legible for those of a script face, and it is a typeface with many uses. Aside from short amounts of running text, Fling’s capital letters serve well as initials. An extra font of ligatures and alternative letterforms, named Fling Plain Alternate, offer expanded typesetting possibilities.
