A light weight Bauhaus style font with a little handwriting twist. Most curves have a slight overshoot. A lot of characters are still missing due to design difficulties. I hope to add more soon.

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.
Inspired by the starting point 'elegant' , this font was developed looking at the structure of constellations, and how a number of different points can be interpreted into images. The fine, interconnected lines of the typeface reflect the delicate and subtle connotations of the word 'elegant', and it is designed to be used as a display face. the name 'Cassiopeia' is taken from an existing constellation, initially listed in the 2nd century.
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
