Felicità is based on the design of my »Ellida« font-family. It was designed with »happiness« in mind therefore I used extremely high contrast between the down- and upstrokes, this gives the fonts a lively, happy appearance.
I designed two different basic fonts, that can be mixed or used straight (this is number two). Then I designed two different sets of Initials (Initials), middle- and end-swingsand added a set of embellishment C swings and flowers A.
Since not everybody uses Open-Type-savy software I designed single fonts to be mixed. llida is suited very well to design short captions & for all kinds of invitations, but as you can see here it can used for longer copy as well just give it enough line spacing.
