Fancy Pantaloons is a typeface for when you are feeling a bit silly and pretentious without wanting to be too over-the-top. This typeface reminds me of old lettering on signs from the early 1900's. A combination of Victorian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and a bit of Techno.
This font was designed around the theme word Elegant. I was inspired to create a typeface that was ornate and palatial; it is a ode to Baroque design.
I have tried to emulate columns for the body of the font and created a crowned frieze for some of the letters with decorative toppers for the remaining characters.
My new typeface 'Coup de ruban' represents the beauty of human movement through interpretive dance. I decided to name my elegant font 'ribbon stroke', but in French, as French is seen as a beautiful language. The thin, curved flourishes follow the movements of the dancer Megan Batoon's hands and feet when dancing to her own choreography. The thick strokes represent ballerina ribbon which ground the flourishes to create a bold, yet elegant display font. -Sam
