Hi, everyone!

I was assigned to design a logo for a theater company. They are producing their first stage play by now, so they are putting a great importance on the logo. It is called "Gentes", which is an unnatural plural of the collective word for "people" in Portuguese.

What sets them apart from other companies in Sao Paulo is that they are going to produce original musical theater, with brand new books and music. Most of the other companies go the other way round: their work is either Broadway musicals barely translated to Portuguese or jukebox musicals telling the stories of some important Brazilian artists.

Hello there! This is my font called FUSION SANS. The idea behind it was to pair up with the font called Sharik Sans (which is the font I used to write out Fusion Sans). It's main purpose is to be in body copy on packaging for the Fusion brand. I wanted it to look simple, readable, but still pleasing to the eye.

Do you think it pairs well with Sharik Sans? If not, do you have any suggestions?

What do you think about the spacing on my test words and do my letters work well together?

Thank you all!

Scripted Font

Hi there,

Can anybody ID this font?


About the project.
Narrated by Tomás García & Valentin Muro.

We are proud to present "Mute", a visual essay about digital technology, to promote the release of the new Sudtipos font "Bowling Script".

About the typeface.
Designed by Ale Paul.


I've just released Madre Script

¶ While reading again Fred Smeijers' Counterpunch, the author stated that the humanistic writing was a philosophical trend and therefore an artificial form of writing by breaking a cycle and by returning to an ancient era. You may assert that the humanistic writing was the first attempt of post-modernism.

1. Was there another post-modernistic attempt before the·Quattrocento·with a breaking point?

2. How would you consider William Morris' typographic leaning of going back to the humanistic origin? The second post-modernistic attempt?

Hi Guys,

Just want to share my latest releases.


A sans serif, fresh and summery, tried to mix different influences (humanistic, script, geometric) into a consistent look


A sort of brush display font, tryed to convey a happy feeling on this one too


First, I’m kind of new to this.
I’m about to create a Script font and I have some problems with the lower “r” and the other lower glyphs connected to it.

Am I supposed to do a ligature for every lower letter connected to the lower “r”? That sounds weird.
When I look at my script fonts installed on my computer there are no big amount of ligatures.

There must be some other solution to it.
When I look at fonts on MyFonts, like Ciao Bella, there are no ligatures for the lower r but when I write it in the “Sample text” field there is a more accurate connection between the lower “o” and the lower “r” and the “e” and the “r” and so on.

Any smart and simple solution to this?
Please help me.

Thank you.

Hi all

I am designing a display typeface in Fontlab. It has substitute ligatures for pretty much every letter combination (like A_A, A_B, A_C...etc). I want to put them all as discretionary ligatures. The code at the moment looks like this:

feature dlig {
sub A A by A_A;
sub A B by A_B;
sub A C by A_C;
sub A D by A_D;
sub A E by A_E;
sub A F by A_F;
sub A G by A_G;
sub A H by A_H;
sub A I by A_I;
sub A J by A_J;
sub A K by A_K;
sub A L by A_L;
sub A M by A_M;
sub A N by A_N;
sub A O by A_O;
sub A P by A_P;
sub A R by A_R;
sub A S by A_S;
sub A T E by A_T_I;
sub A T I by A_T_E;
sub A T by A_T;
sub A U by A_U;
sub A V by A_V;
sub A W by A_W;
sub A X by A_X;
sub A Y by A_Y;
sub A Z by A_Z;


There is a new group for shearing Scripts & Macros on facebook:

Feel free to join and share!

Hello all! I'm pretty new to the world of type, and I want to get into hand-drawn lettering. It's been suggested that I study the history and evolution of scripts, from how they descended from italics and the flexible reed pen, to how swashes change over the centuries. I'm currently reading "The History and Technique of Lettering" by Alexander Nesbitt, which I'm really enjoying. However, the book covers a ton of information in a fairly short amount of pages, and there are some ares which I'd like to explore in depth. One being the history of Dutch writing master Jan van den Velde.

I am currently working on a project to identify a kind or style of typography that is used for a specific application or has a cultural association. I am working with the use of interlocking or connecting letterforms and scripts that often appear in Italian industrial design but specifically on espresso machines.

Can anyone recommend an inky, messy script that they like that might be in the same vein as the stuff in the attached? I know they’re not hard to find, but ideally I’d like to find something more robust (i.e., includes numbers, has alternates, etc.) than the random stuff on DaFont, etc., so I thought I’d see if anyone has a favorite they’ve used.

Hi, I'm starting a project in the fashion / denim space and am looking for something along these lines. Any suggestions? Much of this looks handdrawn, a font would be a great help since client will be using for future projects.

Thank you!

Hi Everyone!

Hoping you can help me with this. I'm wondering what font this is. Bella Figura calls it Aurora but they change all the names of the fonts they use. Would really like to be able to find it so I can use it.

Fontlab output errors

Hello, I'm working on a custom typeface for a Dutch design company and I just came across some problems I have no idea how to fix. Here's a part of the error messages I get:
[WARNING] Use of DFLT tag has been deprecated. It will work, but please use 'dflt' instead. [C:/Users/Martin/Documents/FontLab/Studio5/fontlab.fea 48]
[ERROR] If you don't want feature 'cpsp' registered under all the language systems you specified earlier on in the feature file by the "languagesystem" keyword, you must start this feature with an explicit "script" statement [C:/Users/Martin/Documents/FontLab/Studio5/fontlab.fea 84]


This is a script logotype I designed. It's one of my first attempts at one, if another set of eyes could look at it and point out any flaws that would be great. Larger screenshot is attached. Thanks!

Hello everyone,
I am currently writing a dissertation on type technology, focused on developing a workflow for creating multiweight script/cursive families utilizing Multiple Master technology and some Metafont/Metapost techniques. To be more precise my objective is help the designer in creating calligraphy and brush scripts – of the kind which weight cannot be just changed without complete redrawing (you can’t just move stems around).

Not the best image to show my own version of this weird but beautiful script style, inspired on 1883 James West "Hoyt Script", here I just try to do a very wide range of alternate gliph designs, and hope to have some digital examples to show all of you here or anywhere.

Any kind of criticism are very well welcomed.

Dear all, does anyone know about nice script typeface, alternative to Lavanderia that would work in Polish? Good or at least acceptable diacritics required, and readable version of digraphs used in Polish (rz, cz, sz), like those in Liza.

Most of the scripts, I have found, use "z" with the bottom loop and the script version of the "r" (like in Feel Script), which is not always readable in Polish.

Hi everyone,

I'm glad to be here and I'm looking forward to some great discussions. I thought I'd dive right in: I'm a graphic designer and just starting out with calligraphy and lettering. I've finished my first project and I'd appreciate some feedback on it. On any angle, really. I have no one here to critique my work and there seem to be some real pros here, so I hope I can learn a lot from you guys :)

Here's my project:

All the best,

Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.

Hello, does anybody know what this font is?

Found on the "View-Master Personal Stereo Camera"

It's very possible that this is a custom drawn logo. But you never know.

Thanks in advance!


Been tasked with designing an online writing space using a handwritten-looking font. Most seem pretty terrible for the task of writing/reading 3-4 paragraphs, but I'd still like to give it a good shot.

Any suggestions for a web font that looks handwritten/scripty and remains somewhat usable for medium-form writing and reading?

I know that this wordmark isn't actual type and was likely hand done a long time ago but I am looking for the closest possible typefaces.
