America’s most famous carver of inscriptions, including those at the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery, John Benson conceived Balzano (Italian for “bouncing”) as an upright script whose character would come from active individual strokes and letter shapes. He was particularly inspired by a page of pen-written letters by calligrapher Raphael Boguslav. As a result, Balzano features thin hairlines and pronounced vertical strokes with active terminals. Open counterforms and varying letter heights contribute to the vitality of this 1995 Adobe Originals release. Although suitable for brief copy in larger text sizes, Balzano excels in display settings.

The Adobe Originals program started in 1989 as an in-house type foundry at Adobe, brought together to create original typefaces of exemplary design quality, technical fidelity, and aesthetic longevity. Today the Type team’s mission is to make sophisticated and even experimental typefaces that explore the possibilities of design and technology. Typefaces released as Adobe Originals are the result of years of work and study, regarded as industry standards for the ambition and quality of their development.
