Green Fairy Font Family
Green Fairy is a chromatic font family highly ornamented for display purposes.
Green Fairy’s characters have been specifically designed to accommodate its loops and ornaments following a modern typeface structure.
Green Fairy has four chromatic weights:

1. Green Fairy Outline
2. Green Fairy Dots
3. Green Fairy Stencil
4. Green Fairy Full
The Outline weight has been created as the base or structure for the other styles. You can combine these weights as well as add colours to obtain multiple effects and type styles.
Green Fairy has also three combined weights (combos) to simplify your workflow, for these occasions when you only want to use one single colour in your font:

5. Green Fairy Dots Combo
6. Green Fairy Stencil Combo
7. Green Fairy Full Combo
Green Fairy Origins

The origin of this typeface is the lettering I designed in 2015 as part of my illustrated cocktail artwork called “Absinthe. La Fée Verte” (Green Fairy). Originally, this lettering only featured eight letters “AB·SINTHE” vector drawn in Illustrator.
Right after creating the full-colour artwork, I designed a fountain-letterpress print version in collaboration with Ladies of Letters, A.K.A. Carla Hackett and Amy Constable from Saint Gertrude Fine Printing.
At the beginning of 2016 —and thanks to the project @36daysoftype— I found the motivation, and most importantly the deadline, to draw the rest of the twenty-six letters of the uppercase alphabet.
I started 2017 having my first two calligraphy courses sold out, so I took this amazing opportunity to devote myself to Green Fairy for nine months straight.
I purchased the font software Glyphs and I started to re-draw all twenty-six letters of the uppercase alphabet again, followed by the numbers, currency symbols, diacritics, punctuation marks as well as spacing and kerning.
Green Fairy is the result of an intense nine-month-full-time personal investment and I couldn’t be happier with this release! The font is now available commercially at MyFonts.
Thanks for watching!
