Jesse Ragan and Ben Kiel originally designed Cortado Script for the accessory brand Aldo, their work inspired by the lettering of illustrator Cecilia Carlstedt. A reworked version of the typeface is now available to the public. Jesse and Ben hired me to design and code a microsite showcasing the typeface for its release.
The website demonstrates the versatility of Cortado Script while highlighting the typeface’s complex features in an approachable manner. I created eight different specimen cards for the website and built a perpetual type tester so that visitors could watch the script’s character substitution take place before their eyes. Cecilia provided coffee-colored illustrations for the header and footer.
