Balter Serif is a hand-drawn layered typeface family inspired by sign painting, 1960’s movie posters and jazz album lettering. It can look fresh and modern or exquisitely vintage. Combine upper, lowercase and alternates to create a handmade custom lettered look, then layer the styles using colors to add value and depth to your designs !
Balter Serif works perfectly in short headlines. It is suitable to create a wide range of projects from posters to branding, logos, packaging, magazines and more.
