Vogue - Butler

 

Butler is a beautiful and versatile font inspired by both Dala Floda & the amazing Bodoni family. Just in time for Valentines Day, Butler would bring an elegant flourish to any love letter. The Bodoni influence give an elegant balance to the high contrast allowing the font to be used for both display and blocks of content.

 

  • Type Style:  Serif / Stencil
  • Suited For: Display
  • Characters: 334
  • Weights: 7
  • X-Factor: Stencil typefaces, glyphs

The font was designed by Fabian De Smet, a graphic designer and illustrator from Belgium. According to Fabian:

“The main goal was to bring a bit of modernism to serif fonts by working on the curves of classical serif fonts and adding an extra stencil family.”

This font would be perfect for dramatic posters or albums – with distinct and timeless style that will give a refined polish to any piece.

The stencil version of Bulter is also beautifully crafted and works well with the other weights or on its own. I would recommend pairing with Campton or Baron.
