Borealis is based on samples of advertising lettering from the 1930s with a strong Art Deco influence but a unique almost futuristic look. The characters are formed from very fine hand-drawn lines reminiscent of our Ducatus and Broadley fonts. Drawing a font like this with such regular lines and curves is extremely challenging and demands a great deal more attention than traditional fonts where broader strokes and heavier weights give some room for variation. With lines this thin and precise everything has to be perfect from the width of the lines to the balance of the curves. The end result is a stylish and distinctive font with a look that’s great for logos or custom title designs.

You can download and try the demo version of Borealis in TrueType format for Mac or PC. The full version of the font is available if you want to BUY IT NOW.
