Font Family: Cortado Script, Number of fonts: 1*OTF, Designer: Jesse Ragan, Ben Kiel, Design date: 2015
With assertive energy and casual elegance, Cortado Script is poised to command attention in a wide range of design applications.
Cortado Script was designed by Jesse Ragan & Ben Kiel, inspired by Cecilia Carlstedt’s hand-painted lettering.
The typeface is named for café cortado—Spanish for "cut coffee”—a popular beverage combining espresso with steamed milk.
Cortado Script is a fresh take on mid-century pointed brush lettering. To capture the loose spontaneity of handwriting, its innovative OpenType programming strategically inserts connection breaks amid the rhythm of cursive strokes. Automatic features also swap in different shapes for repeated letters, substitute ligatures where needed, and add restrained flourishes to word endings.
Cortado Script provides language support for typesetting coffee menus in Albanian, Catalonian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Icelandic, Italian, Latin, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Pig Latin, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish, Swedish, & Turkish.
