The dynamic duo at Resistenza teamed up with calligrapher Andrea Tardivo on their latest family. Giaunduja takes it's name from a chocolate hazlenut spread considered a delicacy in Turin. Renowned for its beautiful packaging and rich flavour, Resistenza sought to infuse the sweetness and tradition of Turin's confectionery into a new family of hand crafted fonts.
Each glyph was first drawn on paper and then digitised to retain the handmade quality and crafted aesthetic, while also referencing the decadent foils they use to wrap each exquisite creation.
The extensive display family contains;
- Gianduja Sans a geometric font based on examples found in italian art deco era artworks.
- Gianduja Script has been handwritten with a speedball pen following the standards of “Bella Scrittura”
- Gianduja Capitals (my favourite) is a decorative font inspired by the “liberty” lettering signs from Piemonte,
- Gianduja Inline Capitals, and
- a set of icons and decorative elements all with the same handmade characters to perfectly partner with each character set.
Each face has an extensive palette of alternates accessible via opentype. Gianduja is available via Myfonts
