About: To Rafaella, ''a menina dos cachos''.

We, designers, have grown accustomed to see that lowercase letters not only in calligraphy but also in typography (1) may be very playful and decorative: Almost every part of them can become a potential swash, ligature or decorative accolade (2) if the designer has some expertise regarding this matter.

However, since lately we are living in an era that elevates the status of handcrafts, lettering has gained a lot of ground in different kinds of mediums, and with it there's a sort of overuse of capitals. This may be due to the reason that lettering pieces need a high impact to convey their messages and many times big capitals are the only solution.

With this in mind, I started Rafaella: A font consisting entirely of capitals which go from ''dispossessed'' to very decorative.

Rafaella has its ductus and forms vaguely based on the 1970s Bookman-like styled fonts. The presence and behaviour of serifs and ball terminals in this is style were the perfect excuse to make really attractive aternates which the user can choose from the glyphs panel.

The result is a font full of life, very playful yet formal, that due to it's roman style can be combined with (and between) a wide range of other styles of expressive scripts or geometrical fonts with nice results (3).

Try also Rafaella Shade Solo combined with Rafaella or Rafaella Bold to have a layer effect so the word is emphasized.
