I’m excited to announce today that Prova, my first typeface, is available for purchase here. I poured a lot of time, energy, and passion into this typeface, and learned so much so quickly. Now, it’s time for a proper nap.
The word PROVA means “test” in Italian and “proof” in Portuguese. It was chosen to commemorate this release as the first of many typefaces I hope to design. PROVA started from tight sketches and evolved into a full, international character set. The primary intention was to produce friendly, condensed letterforms that contained the occassional charming quirk, but function as a hand-drawn workhorse display font that could compliment illustration and interactive work.
Special thanks to my wife, who supported and encouraged me through one too many nights of tedious kerning and tweaking.
I hope you enjoy using it as much as I enjoyed creating it. If you make any work using Prova, please rebound the Dribbble release shot or send me a message so I can review your submission for possibly inclusion on the typeface release page. Cheers!
