Silencio Sans was originally developed for CAA’s (Creative Artists Agency) to be used on their Friday Night Party invitation in 2014. The party’s theme was “old Hollywood” so the design inspiration came from movie title credits. The name Silencio references silent films, but this font would feel as at home in magazines, invitations, and fancy food packaging as it does on the silver screen. It's also a wonderful "best supporting actress" typeface—pair it with custom lettering (like I did for the invite!) or with another display face. For all fonts and digital products, please read the End User License Agreement before purchasing. You will receive a download link via email immediately upon purchase.
You will receive a link to download the file immediately after purchase.
All files are packaged as .zip files and therefore should be downloaded on desktop only. The download link will be deactivated after use so please save your font files in safe place. If you have misplaced your font file, contact us with proof of purchase for a replacement.
After double-clicking your font file to unpackage the contents, double click each .otf file to open your local font management software and follow installation instructions.
Another simple way to install the file(s) is to simply copy the file(s) to the Fonts folder in your Library. This is a good option if you don’t have a large library of fonts. I recommend saving a copy of the full font folder elsewhere on your machine so you can reference the included materials when necessary.
These instructions are relevant to Mac users only, follow these instructions provided by Microsoft or tap Google for font management software options.

Licensing for Products
Most on-product uses of my fonts (like packaging design) are granted by the Standard EULA. Exceptions to this are products such as Alphabet block sets, personalizable items, or items in which the font is the most sellable feature of the product.
These cases would be considered a brand partnership or extended use license. Please reach out for questions about extended use licensing for products.
At this time most of my typefaces are available for desktop use only with the exception of Tilda, which is available as a web font via Webtype. I will be offering web fonts of all other fonts soon. Stay tuned!
