With just under three months, the goal was to create a working typeface. Cecillia is a modern swath serif that was inspired by classic fonts like Didot and Bodoni. This typeface is familiar and friendly with contrasting thick and thin strokes. Although being inspired by traditional serif typefaces, Cecillia is unique in its own way with slightly rounded serifs and bolder, natural weight. Shortened serifs allow for more space next to each character, and similar curves in each rounded letter form fit into each other like a puzzle. Cecillia is a vintage inspired typeface, with a contemporary attitude.
