Sometimes you fall in font love when you see it used in a design by another designer. That's how I fell for Gelateria, this fun retro font by Ryoichi Tsunekawa. Laura Hankins, a fellow Minted designer, used Gelateria recently in a wedding invitation design challenge. I am a fan of Laura's designs and love the feminine, retro feel of this invitation.
Gelateria was based on shop front lettering and advertisements from the 1950s. At only $20, it's a great deal and even though I've already exceeded my font budget for the week month, I might go snag this right now. What's another 20 bucks right?
