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.

Need Feedback: Custom Script

I'm working on a custom script as a logotype and would like to have you feedback - I have two versions with differing "L"s:

So, A or B? I feel pretty good with the "Hus" but I think that the "tle" still needs some working out. Additionally I'm aware of some of the Illustrator stroke issues with some jankiness that I'll attend to once I get the letter forms finalized.

Let me know if you see any other problem areas or have suggestions to improve it.
Thanks!

Closest match to this book cover c. 1936 - script and slab

Hi, typophiles,

Can anyone identify something close to either of these two typefaces on this book cover? (Jan Huizinga, In the Shadow of Tomorrow, 1936)?

I realize it's hand-lettered, but anything close as a starting place would be a big help - with some attention to the detail/peculiarities, if possible.

Thanks!
