    Bar/dining room Rosella serves Italian food in Collingwood, Australia. Their signs and website were designed by Studio Round.

    The identity pairs three typefaces with outspoken personalities. The restaurant name and sign are set in Solenizant Bold, designed by Maciej Połczyński and available from Laïc. Solenizant is an all-caps design, with width increasing in subsequent weights. Secondary information is set in Helmut Condensed, designed by Superscript² and available from Production Type. Like Solenizant, Helmut contains no regular lowercase; instead it features small caps measuring half the height of the capitals (not used for the design of Bar Rosellla).

    Short copy and the tag lines are set in the monospaced Clack Cursive, a freshly released typeface by Dennis Grauel, inspired by “styles found in select Underwood, Adler, Olympus and Hermes typewriters” — an interesting subgenre of typefaces, taking cues from a period in the mid-twentieth century when certain typewriter typefaces took inspiration from monolinear script fonts (see for instance Monoline Script) to lend a more spontaneous look to the typed output. Later digital typefaces which in turn are inspired by these script/typewriter hybrids include Operator Mono from Hoefler & Co. and the recently released Typewriter Script style of Dico (Bold Monday). These two are executed with more glyphs and more refinement than Clack Cursive. In this identity, the quirks of Clack Cursive fit right in, adding some warmth and charm.

    The shop window and the menu use Myriad.
