Designed by Ricardo Marcin and Erica Jung, Allotropic is an art nouveau and retro font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by The Flying Type.
Allotropic is a pretty decorative face with a remarkable art nouveau flair. It loosely draws inspiration from a 1914 untitled alphabet by J.M. Bergling, a then “Modern Alphabet”, and from its interpretation by Photo-Lettering, from the sixties.
Allotropic comes in two styles, regular and bold, both with extended language coverage, as well as stylistic alternates and a couple of ornaments. It’s decidedly a fab choice not only for vintage and retro designs (ça va sans dire!), but also for creative contemporary uses in print and on screen. Play it on book covers, packaging, branding, editorial, web, advertising, apparel, uses are endless.
Just give Allotropic a go, let the inspiration flow and keep on creating!
