Background

Zingha “balances French rhythm with American style.” Traditional inscriptions inspire design of the roman capitals, but Dupré allowed himself more freedom in the spirited lowercase and personal italic. He drew at night, defying the round and luscious letterforms required by his day job preparing sweet and creamy designs to please the food packaging industry. Rich sets of swash characters offer decorative variation in display yet remain legible in small sizes.
