Looking for a script with Italian feel - logo for pizzeria and spaghetteria

I am currently doing a logo for Italian restaurant, pizzeria and spaghetteria. Name for restaurant is Bruschetta, located in Zadar, Croatia.

Client even before brief wanted Kunstler script to use as main typography but I think it is not so appropriate for an Italian restaurant.
I need alternative for script if client doesn't want to use serifed typeface.

So I am looking for a script that has organic feel, that has connection with food, vegetables, ingredients. And also convey italian and mediterranean feel.

Thought of pairing Bodoni and Bodoni script but I am not sure for now.

And maybe something like this.

Thanks everyone.

“My name is Bob and I’m 56”: ErikRightHand in use at transitional housing development

Modified Script critique

Hello all,

I am working on a logo design for a photographer. I am finally to playing with beziers. I'd like some feedback on my progress. Attached is a little process of the modifications.

Let me know if you think something is too much or too little or if you have other suggestions. I want it to feel a little more natural, but mostly to just feel "right" if that makes sense.

Thanks!!

"Segoe Script" Scripts list and calts

Forums: 

Is there anything odd in the calt list of Vista/Windows 7's font "Segoe Script"? I was alerted today by an InDesign user that contextual alternates do work for Latin script, but don't appear to get activated for Cyrillic text.

I examined the OTF tables, and, sure enough, the calt tables for Latin are only defined in the Latin Script part, and the Cyrillic Script section has its own calt list. Nothing out of the ordinary, I presume.

Theoretically, the used program ought to recognize a series of Cyrillic characters and automatically switch over to the Cyrillic section -- right? I think that was the entire purpose of the Scripts sections. Could it be an error in InDesign CS4? Or am I misinterpreting the use of the Script tags and how they would work in practice?

Complementary Typeface for custom script wordmark

Forums: 

Greetings all. First time poster. I've trying to find a pairing face for a custom wordmark that I've done for a mixed martial arts company (yuck, I know). The wordmark is comparable to something like the ford logo. I can't seem to think of anything that really works well enough for me to present.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

Retro/vintage TV script font - various suggestions {Rainer}

Hi there,

Looking for something similar to this retro/vintage script font (used on an 80s portuguese tv show).
The letters aren't even the same so this is probably all handwritten - but I'm desperately looking for something like this.

The words are cut - it read 'ora' and 'olha' (the complete words would be 'agora escolha').

Thanks in advance!

(x) ID the typographer? "Monika Italic" - Mr Canfields by Alejandro Paul {Pete B}

Hi folks,

I'm not sure this is the exact right place for this, but I'm trying to track down the typographer of a free script font that's all over the freebie sites.

Font is Monika Italic [link removed by moderator] and the credit goes to "Catrina" (for whom I cannot seem to find any info whatsoever).

I'd like to use this in a commercial piece (all accompanying license info says it's freeware, but the font file is unembeddable which indicates otherwise). Can anyone either point me in the right direction, or perhaps suggest a suitable alternative ('50s-era italic script)? This is a pro bono project, so sadly I need to lean toward free or cheap.

Thanks so much!

How do I script Swash letters, alternates etc.?

Forums: 

I've recently learned how to use Fontlab Studio 5, and I also learned how to script ligatures. But I noticed Illustrator for example has more buttons in the type tool section: Standard Ligatures, Contextual Ligatures, Discretionary Ligatures, Swash, Stylistic Alternates, Titling Alternates, Ordinals and Fractions.

So out of that list, I only know how to script the standard ligatures. Does anyone know how to script the others, or do you know a source to learn about it? Most font families contain all the ligatures and swash letters as seperate fonts rather than putting it into a single font (OpenType). Is there a reason for doing this?
