Fonts from 2013: Desire

Fonts from 2013: Desire

Veer's Creative Team takes time out to dish on the fonts that made their year.

Eli's pick from 2013: Desire by Charles Borges de Oliveira for Borges Lettering - (October 2013)

With over five years of design and development, Desire is a pursuit of epic proportions and ready to make a statement by adding elegance and unique flair to your next design project. Cultivated by his passion of letters, Charles Borges de Oliveira has developed one of his largest typefaces to date. Featuring 644 alternate letters, 98 ligatures, 8 flourishes and 6 catchwords, Desire offers an expansive set of options to create logos, headlines and titling. It is well suited for book covers, editorial, packaging, advertising, branding and more. From period style and Victorian to modern and elegant, Desire is strong and stately yet elegant and decorous. Some of the alternate uppercase forms feature delicate line flourishes creating a subtle background for additional letters to rest - the result is an intertwining and beautifully flourished design. Unique ligatures go beyond function and add eye catching flair and style.

You'll enjoy experimenting with the different flourishes and styles. It's a different font every time you use it.
