Jesse Ragan and Ben Kiel, founders of XYZ Type, originally designed Cortado Script for the accessory brand Aldo, their work inspired by the lettering of illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt. The Cortado Script microsite was created for the typeface’s commercial release.

The website demonstrates the versatility of Cortado Script while explaining the typeface’s complex features. Specimen cards are used as dividers, each one speaking in a different voice—the typeface easily goes from glamorous to sporty to artisanal to retro to vintage. A perpetual type tester allows users to watch the script’s OpenType character substitution take place before their eyes, and illustrations illuminate specific options built into the font software. Cecilia provided coffee-colored illustrations for the header and footer.
