Lavandula is a genus of 47 known species of flowering plants. Often referred to as lavender, and there is a color named for the shade of the flowers of this species.
Lavandula is like a bite from a typographical maraschino cherry. It’s juicy, packs a punch, and is just a little bit too much. Consistently rhythmic in it’s reverse contrast style, Lavandula would feel at home on a gig poster or on your dad’s upcoming high school reunion t-shirt.
Lavandula is a high contrast, reverse stress type family doused in italic influence. In its infancy, Lavandula was designed to reject classic reverse contrast tropes like wanted posters or western themes. One of the less obvious features is its reliance on reversed-translation angle which gives it a very approachable vibe. This type family has 4 styles to play with — including a script version of the bold italic that feels like lettering but flows like type. There’s no shortage of fun to be had with this sprightly type family.
