What is the Storyville™ font?
This is the redrawn and expanded version of an alphabet Rebecca Alaccari made back in 2009 as a bespoke font for a tourism agency looking to recapture the appeal of New Orleans after the hurricane Katrina disaster robbed it of its core industries. The brief back then was to “revive the unique spirit of what always made Nola great for new adults, which is the excellent combination of history, romance, food and music.” No word of a lie, the brief actually contained “new adults.” More…
Storyville contains two interchangeable sets of forms drawn in the doodly, loose and organic way now conspicuously popular with today’s young designers, almost every one of whom thinks they will get to design something for a boutique coffee bar somewhere. Well, this whole thing perhaps means freedom, youth, fun, happiness, good stuff like that. But just in case, a little caution doesn’t hurt: Use this font only if you know what you’re doing. We don’t want to go back to the 1990s. Please. We were nearly done for by that exposure the first time around.
The ligatures feature in this font does some pseudo-randomization, so the forms in doubled letters don’t repeat. Serious fun can be had by also applying the stylistic alternates feature, or picking a letter in the middle of a setting and disabling the ligatures feature. Or various sequences of all that. If you don’t like any of that stuff, just forget about it. Uh, wutever.

You're probably thinking - Is Storyville™ available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Storyville™ is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Storyville™, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Storyville™ and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Storyville™ is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Storyville™ and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Storyville™.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Storyville™ for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Storyville™ Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Storyville™ remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
