Ella is a stencil typeface family consisting of four styles (Roman, Uncial, Rustic, and Brutalist) in two weights (Regular and Bold) with a calligraphic flair.

Ella shares the logical principles of letter construction with calligraphy, but it does so under a typographic approach. The Roman, Uncial, and Rustic styles have different capital styles that mirror the evolution of the Roman script. They share a unique lowercase set that unifies the characteristics of the three styles. The large x-height and triangular serifs of the lowercase bring sharpness while keeping some ductus and warmth. Besides, Ella’s fourth style, the unapologetic Brutalist, explores the next level of plasticity and takes the calligraphic expression to the limits of construction. Ella wants to show how classic calligraphy models can be adapted into stencil-style fonts, and perform as a contemporary digital typeface.

The two weights, Regular and Bold, with low-to-high contrast, are meant for use in text and display. The Ella family has been designed to be seen in posters, book covers, and even branding, wherever personality, expressionism, and sophisticated brutalism are needed. 

This project started at the Hoffmitz Milken Center for Typography "Typographers-in-Residence 2021: Mujeres Hispanas y Tipografía". Thanks to Oriol Miró for his calligraphy models

Ella is a TDC 2023 winner and got a Certificate of Typographic Excellence
