Amazingly real looking handwritten messages with LiebeHeide color font
This new digital font not only contains the latest font technology but also years of lettering experience of its designer Ulrike Rausch. LiebeHeide is a digital script font that authentically reproduces the writing of a ballpoint pen. A combination of OpenType and Color Font technology makes this typographic miracle possible.
LiebeHeide is based on high-res digitized ballpoint pen letterings with lots of ligatures and alternate letters. Typical handwriting attributes like symbols and doodles, up to underlines (single and double) and lots of strikethroughs give this typeface its charm. Most symbols are easily accessible because they assemble automatically, for example the heart from <3, a smiley face from :-) or arrows from -> and -->. In total LiebeHeide contains almost 500 glyphs.
The font works in all professional design programs, e. g. in Adobe’s Creative Cloud apps and all native Mac OS apps like Pages, Numbers, or Keynote. The color of words set in LiebeHeide cannot be changed in text editors, but with Photoshop filters.
Ingenious: to increase performance, the font has 3 different resolutions, so that applications only load the size that is currently needed.
Typical areas of application for LiebeHeide are packaging and editorial design, as well as personalized mailings and the entire spectrum of below-the-line marketing: ambient media, direct marketing, lotteries, flyers, as well as event and guerilla marketing. In social media marketing, this authentic script draws attention to banners and memes.
