Sterling Script was initially meant to a be digitization/reinterpretation of a copperplate script widely used during what effectively became the last decade of metal type: Stephenson Blake's Youthline, from 1952. The years from 1945 to 1960 saw a heightened demand for copperplate faces, due to post-war market optimism, as well as the banking and insurance industries booming like never before, which triggered the need for design elements that express formal elegance and luxury.
Sterling Script is the ultimate elegant font choice for luxury design. Very elegant, but not too soft. It's strong and confident shapes convey a message that is real, comforting and assuring.
