Suggest bold, legible, italic/cursive font?
0

This is not a genre of typefaces I usually spend a lot of time pondering, so I thought I would ask y'all for suggestions.

Looking for a cursive, italic or possibly script font, at least moderately bold. It needs to be highly legible, warm, personal, and modern. Not too formal/frilly. Sauna Bold Italic (probably swash?) is the first thing that comes to mind.

Thoughts?

Capucine!

Extra info point: this is for a logo design.

Those are all interesting suggestions! Capucine seems close to what I had in mind, but Coline Cursive and Insouciant are intriguing directions. Andron seems almost too normal/traditional for this purpose, but one of the letters that would feature in the logo is particularly gorgeous, so maybe!

It will be interesting to see what catches the fancy of the designer working with this.

Thank you all for taking the time to consider my question. Further ideas still appreciated, at least for another day or so! :)

Regards,

How about the Italics of FF Strada or FF Masala (the latter has a Script variant too which might however be too much); or maybe Brevia Italic?

Bello is indeed too scripty. But FF Strada Black Italic, FF Masala Bold Italic or Black Italic, Brevia Black Italic, those are all in the right range.

Thanks!
