Rialto is a monoline script - typeface inspired by neon signs in Poland.
Zuzanna is a graphic designer based in Warsaw. She specialises in brand identity and type design. She’s passionate about old neon signs and sign painting. Her dream is to travel to the USA and learn the craft from local sign painters. Rialto was concieved at the University of Arts in Poznań (Poland) as, Zuzanna's A Diploma project.
I purchased a license for Rialto earlier this week and haven't stopped playing with it since! Its fluid monolinear forms contrast with sharp and precise terminals to give the face which was inspired buy retro signage forms a more contemporary feel than many mono display scripts on the market today.
The typeface is designed to evolve as your type. It contains contextual alternates, basic and discretionary ligatures, initials and swashes. There are swashes for capitals, beginning and ending swashes in lowercase, plus dash swashes in lowercase. Lower and upper case contain a set of block letters which you can find by turning on Small Caps.
Rialto is a monolinear display swashed script and came from dynamic and rhythmical handwriting. All of the glyphs are sit slightly above the baseline with a slanted axis. Rialto is perfect for titles, logos, signs andof course, neon signs.
