»Playin’ with Type« (for widescreen displays)

Wallpaper 1920x1200. Designed to be used as Cover for my 1st »Behance Project«—nothing but a selection of my Wallpapers.


Typefaces in use:


Alejandro Paul’s (SUDTIPOS) unique, striking script face »Candy Script«.


Candy Script: Inspired by Argentina and its culture, Alejandro Paul’s Candy Script captures the country’s spirit. It comes from the tradition of window sign painting, but its thick hand-brushed characters, with alternates for almost every upper and lowercase letter, have a personality all their own.


Also in use:


Bas Jacobs, Akiem Helmling and Sami Kortemäki’s (Underware) brush-drawn, fashionable, lively script face »Bello Pro«.


Bello is a brush typeface for headline point sizes - it’s big & beautiful. Bello has lots of ligatures and start and ending swashes. They are automatic in Bello Pro, which is a cross-platform OpenType font with many OpenType features.


After a period of hand sketching and lettering, we decided to give Bello two main styles: script and small caps. These two fonts create a strong typographic contrast - while Bello Script is flourished and flowing, Bello Small Caps are upright and sturdy. As sturdy as brush lettering allows for, of course.


Careful spacing and kerning ensures that Bello appears like fluently written handwriting. However, that’s not enough for a hand-lettered feel. Therefore Bello comes with a set of 64 ligatures. Some of them are typographic, some made simply to create a more intimate, natural impression. For the same reasons we have added a few ornaments and a set of snap-on beginning and ending swashes which attach to the lowercase letters of Bello.
