Fratello Nick

Fratello Nick is a sweet hand-lettered font inspired by my beautiful red-headed son Nick and his love of reading. The font reflects some of that storybook feel with bunnies, birds, butterflies and floral ornaments. It works on any project that is hoping to convey a light hearted, warm, authentic feel.   The Fratello Nick font family includes regular, bold, italic and bold italic weights, a Pro version with 1496 glyphs, two sets of initial caps, a monogram font and three versions of split monogram fonts. And if that’s not enough it also has a set of ornaments and frames!  See pictures of Fratello Nick in use at the bottom of this page and read ‘The Story Behind the Font’ in the READ MORE section below.

The Story behind the Font

Once upon a time, there was a red headed boy named Nicolas who loved to read books. So his mother would have him curl up in her lap and read to his heart’s content. And this made Nicolas a very happy boy.  The years have passed and Nicolas now goes by Nick. He went to college in Washington, D.C. where he was a handler for Jack the Bulldog, (R.I.P.) and became a Nationals fan. He lives and works there and knows the Metro like the back of his hand.  But he can smoke a rack of ribs like the true Texas boy he is. He still loves to read. And that makes Nick a very happy man.  I was inspired to hand letter this font to honor this boy I love so much.  Because raising a boy who becomes a wonderful man is something to celebrate.  The moral of the story: Cuddling with books always leads to good things.

I hope Fratello Nick will be a part of helping you create stories of your own.
