FontsPoeta Color

Poeta Color is an ornamental color font family for making patterns and text decoration. It contains floral, nature, abstract motifs, and a universe of creative possibilities.

The symbols are versatile enough for simple decoration or festive holiday moods. Designers can use Poeta to make unique lines, borders, backgrounds, or ornamentation within or around text. Try replacing a simple straight line with repeated symbols. Cover an area in a pattern to add visual interest to a design. Use the forms to decorate a chapter title or to mark the end of a magazine article. Replace a letter with a symbol to create a memorable word. Poeta will add visual poetry to any design project.

This font began with sketches of patterns seen in ceramic tiles around Sicily. It is named Poeta because Sicily is an island rich in poetry traditions.
