HistoryConga Brava was born when book and type designer Michael Harvey decided to wed the high-minded, purist letterforms of revivalist, modern calligraphers with the mundane, even crude, lettering of warehouse stenciling. The resulting lyrical yet utilitarian forms have a visually exciting graphic effect. Like his other typefaces, Ellington, Strayhorn, and Mezz, Harvey named his design after a jazz classic - Conga Brava by Duke Ellington and his trombonist Juan Tizol. According to Harvey, The rolling rhythm, polished swing, and stacatto brass treatment of the tune suits the look of this sassy roman design; even more so, its stencil mate. So when youre working on food, music or game packaging, sports equipment, or restaurant/nightclub logos and you need a typeface that radiates sound and motion, think Conga Brava.
Menu Names And Style Linking
In many Windows® applications, instead of every font appearing on the menu, fonts are grouped into style-linked sets, and only the name of the base style font for a set is shown in the menu. The italic and the bold weight fonts of the set (if any) are not shown in the font menu, but can still be accessed by selecting the base style font, and then using the italic and bold style buttons. In this family, such programs will show only the following base style font names in the menu:
Conga Brava Std
Conga Brava Std Light
Conga Brava Std SmBd
The other fonts in this family must be selected by choosing a menu name and then a style option following the guide below.
|Menu Name||plus Style Option...||selects this font|
|Conga Brava Std||[none]||Conga Brava Std Regular|
|Conga Brava Std||Bold||Conga Brava Std Bold|
|Conga Brava Std Light||[none]||Conga Brava Std Light|
|Conga Brava Std SmBd||[none]||Conga Brava Std Semibold|
|Conga Brava Std SmBd||Bold||Conga Brava Std Black|
On the Mac OS operating system, although each font appears as a separate entry on the font menu, users may also select fonts by means of style links. Selecting a base style font and then using the style links (as described above for Windows applications) enhances cross-platform document compatibility with many applications, such as Microsoft Word and Adobe® PageMaker® software, although it is unnecessary with more sophisticated Adobe applications such as recent versions of Illustrator®, Photoshop® or InDesign® software.
One should not, however, select a base font which has no style-linked variant, and then use the bold or italic styling button. Doing so will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
