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


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]


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