Type Tuesday: Tartuffo Is Inspired By Characters From Literary Classics

Posted inTypography

Lift Type is an independent type foundry based in France, and their recent font Tartuffo is a typeface inspired by characters throughout literary classics. The typeface is simple yet often with unexpected twists, primarily when focusing on specific ligatures. With a range of variations, from thin to bold italic, Tartuffo can be used throughout various designs, whether it be headlines or logos. 

Tartuffo is a fresh typeface inspired by many characters from various literature pieces. Its name comes from a famous character called Tartuffe, from Tartuffe or the impersonator by the french playwright, actor and poet: Molière. Also, the font has the Tartufo di Pizzo as an influence, a traditional Italian dessert with a chocolate base.
This new font, the Tartuffo, is as bad-looking and bitter as the hypocrites in literary works…. But It’s succulent, flexible, and sweet thanks to its fluid texture in all the details!
