Cardone, developed between 2016 and 2021 is a singular interpretation of early so-called Scottish modern faces, later called Scotch Roman. Specifically created for editorial design, this serif typeface seeks an ideal balance between elegance and robustness: its ample curves contrast with the brutality of its lines and the verticality of its axis.
The five weights of Cardone ranging from Thin to Bold each with its own italic have been designed separately so as to emphasize the uniqueness of their design. Without sacrificing the elegance of Scottish modern faces, each style is pushed to the point of extreme simplicity and efficiency, both in their structure and in every formal detail.
Functional and legible, the typeface has been designed mainly for use with running text. Nevertheless the constant thickness of Thin or, inversely, the stark contrast of Bold allows Cardone to stand out when used in titles.
To extend its efficiency to multiple uses, the Cardone type family is also available in a Micro version (Regular and Italic) intended for settings in smaller than eight points. The design displays forms that are radical, mechanical and straightforward.
For more unconventional applications, Cardone Micro has also been designed to be spectacular when used in large sizes.
