Impallari Type

Website redesign in progress. Pardon the dust.

A Formal Script for the web

Formal Scripts are great typefaces to suggest elegance, quality, refinement and luxury.

They are used a lot in Print, but you don't see many formal scripts used in the Web. Isn't it?
Mostly because their tiny hairlines breaks and disappear when used at small sizes in the screen.

Also, they usually have long ascenders and descenders, and the lowercase letters look to small when compared to most sans or serif fonts. More over, they are usually quite condensed, making it even more difficult to read.

That's why we want to design a script typeface specifically tailored to be used on the web, that can resist being set as small as 13px.
