OVERVIEW

Ladylike is an experimental, specialist typeface created in the Latin script. Ladylike is a print-based typeface that blurs the boundary between the classification of serif and sans by combining these two entities into a single font.

TYPE

This typeface is intended to be used in an editorial setting as well as at a large font size; particularly 72pt or greater. This is due to the fact that one will be able to fully appreciate the high contrasted glyphs and the blended styles they possess.

Influence

Polar opposite typefaces: Giambattista Bodoni’s Bodoni and Paul Renner’s Futura have influenced the making of Ladylike. Unique traits such as thick to hairline strokes and heavy geometric stems enhance the stark contrast in this unique typeface. 

David Carson’s Pepsi ad was also an inspiration on Ladylike, where two fragmented typefaces overlap to spell the his name, leaving the viewer with a collection of glyphs featuring various widths, sizes and serifs.
