In looking through our fonts for something to use on a project my teenage daughter complained that we don’t have enough fonts which feature characters with decorative inside the character form. We have a lot of decorative initials, but only a few fonts where the decoration is inside the character rather than surrounding the character. The two most notable examples are the medieval font Florimel and the celtic font Padstow which only has selected decorated characters.
Taking up the challenge I started by looking for examples of past fonts and lettering which had interior decoration. I found several good examples and decided to start by adapting one of them as the new Cascade font, which is our new featured font. Cascade is based on an early 20th century advertising font and features a river-like motif inside the wide vertical sections of the characters. Coming soon is an entirely original sister font called Celestial which uses the same concept as Cascade with a different design motif.
