Inspired by the fast, fluid handwriting of Starbucks baristas, this whimsical font was created by New Yorker Hanna Kregling.
One Letter At A Time
Hanna, a recent art and ad school graduate, enlisted her caffeinated friends’ assistance and collected different letters of the alphabet from various Starbucks takeaway cups. Once she had enough examples, she cut them out and used them in the design of her font. Her intention was to show the fast pace and originality of being a barista through her own work.
Tall, Grande or Venti
The Barista font is available in three different formats – varying thicknesses cleverly named “Tall” (thin), “Grande” (standard) and “Venti” (thick and bold.) Best of all, it’s available to download for free from Font Space. The casual, scrawling script could be ideal for craft-related projects, blogs and of course, anything coffee-inspired!
