Designed with beautiful contrasts and stylistic alternates, this new font is hypnotic to use. Every glyph has clearly been rendered with stunning attention to detail; contrasting a gentle, more minimal lower-case set with exuberantly expressive upper-case characters which, with their range of stylistic alternates, allow users to craft their own image through a wide range of possibilities.

Ladybird’s stunning hairlines merge with wide open counters and a soft, rhythmic finish to create a timeless sense of sophistication whilst remaining sharp and contemporary. The minimal serifs allow space for most of the action to go in within the bodies of the letterforms, in turn allowing them to accommodate vastly varied intricacies whilst remaining smooth and cohesive.
