script

Italian espresso typography

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.

Font Recommendation: Inky Script

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.

Fontlab output errors

Forums: 

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]

Multiweight script families - Help with PhD

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).

Jim West Schrift

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.

Script wanted – Polish language support

Dear all, does anyone know about nice script typeface, alternative to Lavanderia http://www.losttype.com/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.



I'd really appreciate some feedback

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,

Usable handwritten-ish/script web font for writing?

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?

Typefacet AttributeError

Hi,

I wanted to try out the TypeFacet autokern script. I'm using it with Anaconda. When I run the script, I get the following error:

"Heart & Mind" custom lettering

Hey guys I've been working on this custom lettering project. What do you guys think? Is the composition balanced? Is this too busy? Your suggestions & constructive criticism would be much appreciated!

It's inspired by this quote... "Wealth is of the heart and mind, not the pocket" by Pharrell.

Thanks,

Handwritten script style with flourishes

I pulled this font sample for use in a magazine design. Now that I'm prepping the files for press I cannot locate the original source. I would assume this was a font, since the file is saved as typetester_image.php, but I have no idea where it's from! I've searched You Work for Them and Myfonts with no luck so far.
