The light weight of ITC American Typewriter, with its warm curves, soft brackets, and ball terminals have always been well suited to quaint, feminine subject matter. Designer Celeste Provost expanded on these qualities for a Brooklyn florist and candy store.Starting with the font’s alternate, swash ampersand, Provost gave it a more conventional loop at the top and ended up with a very attractive monogram. Provost also made another adjustment to Typewriter, creating a new weight between the hairline Light and fairly beefy Medium to make the logotype work at a variety of sizes.
Sweet & Flower
ITC American Typewriter tastes just right for this vintage sweet shop.
