Forte is a serif typeface designed by Austrian commercial artist Carl Reissberger in 1962 for the Monotype Corporation.

Design[edit]

The idea for the script face came from the study of plants, individual letterforms being inspired by the long stems and furry heads of the reed.[1] It is intended to give a contrast to sans-serif and classical modern types.[1] Adobe suggests the optimal viewing size to 18.0 points.[2]

Unicode[edit]

Forte has characters in the following Unicode ranges:[3]
