Typographic Ornament


The ornaments pictured above were created by Hermann Zapf in 1998 for Linotype. According to thebookdesigner.com, “Zapfino is an organic and fluid calligraphic script font that comes with dozens of alternate and “swash” characters so you can really customize it.” The ornaments look hand-drawn in calligraphy making them unique and different.

I think these ornaments would be used strategically in a design that looks organic or hand-drawn. They would fit in well with the line weight contrast of such designs using calligraphy-like type.
