Dobro by Mariana Alen

Strings vibrating against wood. Counterpoints. Strong beated rhythms and smooth flexible melodies. Repetitive sequences and syncopations. Sweeps and slides. Folk and tradition.
That's how Dobro sounds.

Inspired by the spirit of bluegrass music and the aesthetic of its wood type gig posters, this typeface explores certain concepts of rhythm and seeks to translate a piece of this universe into writing.

Meant to be used in large sizes, Dobro is a 6-font set designed to work nicely together. It comes in 4 different weights, one color font with miscellaneous and connectors, plus frames and borders that pay tribute to vintage wood type catalogues.

As an old company motto used to say: "Dobro means good in any language!"

When you license Dobro you will download a pack with OpenType fonts but also a Color Font version of Dobro Drunk. (To use color fonts Photoshop CC 2017 /2018, Illustrator CC 2018 or QuarkXpress 2018 is required). If you create outlines in illustrator you can also modify the colors!
Dobro Drunk BW OTF font (works like any font but is black & white.)
Web files are only black and white until browsers support color fonts.
