Typeface Review


Reviewed by Chris Rugen on July 11, 2007

I licensed Estilo minutes after discovering it in Dino dos Santos’s DSTYPE library.

The geometric simplicity of the characters is the basic step in this stylish Deco face’s surprising range. Set a few headlines to see Estilo’s stylish and classy moves: alternates, ligatures, swashes, Greek, all in a handy contextual OpenType package. And it’s easy on the wallet, so get swingin’.

New in ’06: Check out Estilo’s script cut, rounding out the family with lowercase and swash caps.

Chris Rugen lives in Philadelphia, where his wife and daughter endure his longstanding fascination with type's unique role in culture and communication. He splits his time between his home and NYC, working as a Design Director at Columbia University.
