Edgy and modern, Saissant is a hand-drawn font that leaves an impression. Bold capitals and kinetic lowercase letters have been designed for emotional impact. Saissant includes multi-language support as well as contextual alternates and discretionary ligatures for a convincing calligraphic effect.
Saissant will always hold a special place in my heart because it is this font that launched my foundry! In 2010, I was working full time at an advertising agency in a big city where I had lived for 10 years. My day job required long hours, but didn’t provide much fulfillment so in the evenings at home, I started taking on freelance wedding stationery and logo design projects. One of my clients wanted large blocks of texts hand-lettered in a messy but elegant style – unfortunately, their budget didn’t allow for lots of custom calligraphy. I looked online for a font that looked similar but there wasn’t anything available. Being a good Midwestern farm girl, I figured if what I needed didn’t exist I should try to make what I needed instead. And so Saissant was born!
