Aphrodite Slim was designed by Maximiliano Sproviero, Sabrina Lopez and published by Typesenses. Aphrodite Slim consists of 9 styles and household plan options. p > Aphrodite Slim Pro is not just a lighter variation of its sibling Aphrodite Pro. Aphrodite Slim Pro has duplicated the quantity of characters of its partner, which implies more than 500 new glyphs, reaching an overall of more than 1000.

More delicate and careful, Aphrodite Slim Pro is again a brand-new typography with deep calligraphic ideals: We immersed ourselves into the world of each calligraphy ductus and each calligraphy masters by studying from decor to lettering books.

This was the secret for the logic of Aphrodite Slim's behavior.

The new principle of Aphrodite Slim Pro was to join varied designs of calligraphy in one in order to accomplish a self-governing expressiveness, in reality, this is what calligraphy intends to, and we accepted bring those perfects to the world of typography: It is justifiable to be motivated in hundred-year-old calligraphies, but it is even better if the outcomes you get have a plus. An individual plus. During the creation procedure we were questioning whether it was possible to mix specific strokes of such stiff designs as uncial, (Li · n's preferred design), with strokes of the copperplate, (Sav's preferred style), and likewise to take and blend cualities of cancelleresca cursiva, formata and moderna; finally providing our development a roman-transition italic look.

So Aphrodite Slim takes suitables and elements from those formal styles, following its own reasoning though, and highlighting the reality of being a decorative typography.

Calligraphy masters of our past are who we owe money with. They are the cause we have charming letters now. They have been spontaneous at the minute of production, what differs from the type-designers of nowadays, whose spontaneity is more limited.

Digital faces that we are used to see these days are a result of long hours of optical adjustments, grids, macros and motivations of other existing typography, but without personal contributions.

Aphrodite Slim desires to refute this. Its mission is to rescue de spontaneity of the artesanal lettering in order to get special words; those which just calligraphy masters of our past or lettering artists of our present could give us.

We have worked tough to achieve this, making Aphrodite the most universal typeface we could: It was necessary to study the most typical words, focalizing more in the ones describing "sensitivity", of four of the most spoken languages on the planet. Aphrodite Slim has a massive quantity of decorative characters and unique ligatures for phrases and words in English, French, Spanish and German. (See English, Français, Español, Deutsch PDF in the gallery area).

We promise there is no existing type that decorates/ligates glyphs and words like Aphrodite Slim does: It is the very first time a font style like this actually considers its function. -The method glyphs are ligated is insane-:

Aphrodite Slim rescues some suitables of individuals like Jan van den Velde (Italian cancilleresca writing of XVI Century) who comprehends ascenders and descenders as possibilities to enhance the lines of composing with curved strokes that seem to be dancing above and listed below of the words. This master likewise creates ascenders and descenders even where they are not needed, on letters that do not really require them:

Aphrodite Slim takes this suitable. The font counts with a vast array of glyphs that appear not to be pleased with its more primitive kind and prefer to extreme their parts to be decorative.

It likewise existed masters of calligraphy like José de Casanova of XVII Century, who, with a magnificant ability and a really personal mark, had the particularity of ligating words that were actually separated with spaces.

This is another ingenious function in Aphrodite Slim. An investigation of the most common starts and endings words of the English language was done. Having that function triggered (discretionary ligatures), typical words will begin to ligate or to be decorated even when they are separated by spaces.

Impossible to forget Francesco Periccioli of XVII Century and our experience us designers to face with works of him: His letters, that today are included in the group of cancellerescas modernas, have been a direct motivation to the oldstyle figures and historic types variables in Aphrodite Slim.

Giovanni Antonio Tagliente (XVI Century) and his particular way of making tails and diagonals longer than typical, qualities that our production reflects too.

Finally, our experiences in Biblioteca Nacional and Barrio San Telmo, Buenos Aires, were important for us to make Aphrodite Slim more complete and intriguing: Sav did an outstanding work when studying how the ornamental miscellanea and swirls of early XX century were. She likewise examined what particularities made those roman entitling characters look antique so she could rescue some suitables for the oldstyle figures and historic types variables. This likewise leaded her to produce the accessories variable in Aphrodite Slim.

We are really happy with presenting Aphrodite Slim Pro, a typography that was the result of days and nights of working hard, since we do love what we do; and we are happy we are living in a present that offers us the possibility to spread this kind of art, since that is the way we consider our task: Aphrodite Slim Pro is Art. Hope you can value the massive work this type has.
