Desire's Character Map -

With over five years of design and development, Desire is a pursuit of epic proportions and ready to make a statement by adding elegance and unique flair to your next design project. Cultivated by his passion of letters, Charles Borges de Oliveira has developed one of his largest typefaces to date. Featuring 644 alternate letters, 98 ligatures, 8 flourishes and 6 catchwords, Desire offers an expansive set of options to create logos, headlines and titling. It is well suited for books, editorial, packaging, advertising, branding and more. From period style and Victorian to modern and elegant, Desire is strong and stately yet elegant and decorous. A wide selection of alternate upper and lowercase forms feature delicate line flourishes creating a subtle background for additional letters to rest – the result is an intertwining and beautifully flourished design. Unique ligatures go beyond function and add eye catching flair and style. Desire is truly a designer’s dream come true! A PDF of all of the Alternates, Ligatures, Flourishes, and Catchwords is included. Just print it out and use it as a handy reference. Also a helpful description on how to use the font if your software does not support Open Type Features is included. Images above are for demonstration purposes. They are not included with the font.

Using PopChar for Windows and Mac:

If your software does not have access to glyphs:

PLEASE NOTE: If you are using photoshop or a program that does not allow you to access the glyphs palette then please install the multiple Desire files. If your software has access to the Glyphs palette then only install Desire Pro. Desire Pro has everything contained in one font. This is the best way to use Desire as all of the kerning is retained. Also please make sure your design software has the most current updates.

    I finally have a project worthy of this font. Love looking at the samples. Are there any other samples for inspiration anywhere?

    Just purchased Desire. Fell in love with it at first glance. Charles, it is innovators like yourself that leave behind amazing legacies for us designers to take pleasure and profit thereby. Much congratulations on your creation.

    Hi Charles,
    Am excited to work with this gorgeous font, but am not able to use the glyphs as is outlined in the video - or as I am used to with other fonts. I have followed the directions as to loading the OTF font, but when I try to change an A for instance to see what other versions look like, I keep getting the same A. I am using CS5, but haven't had any issues with this before with any other font. I have shut down and restarted Illustrator since I loaded the font - I am using Font Book. Do you have any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?
    Thanks so much,
