An Inspiring Script by Jessica Hische

Forums: 

This is not a direct type ID, but I am hoping I can get some thoughts on an existing font that has similar properties.

I'm working on an identity project for a local emerging fashion designer and after having done a cursory evaluation of her brand, I'm on the hunt for a font to pair with it. We are going for old Hollywood with a modern and fresh twist. Jessica Hische is one of my design idols and I happened across a book cover she did and the look of it fits perfectly - if only she extrapolated this into a font!

Looks retro
Still very modern and fresh
Very clean
Slightly feminine

Modifying/simplifying Amharic script

I was wondering how one goes about modifying glyphs of the Amharic script to a specific distressed/display style, so it's still understandable to people reading it? I need to make an Ethiopian version of a custom designed latin logotype and would like the Amharic letterforms to retain the look.

A quick Amharic version:

Script Font- Need to ID this logo's Script Font

This could be hand-drawn. Their site uses "English Hand DB Regular" for headings and at a glance it's a decent match but that's definitely not what the logo uses. I've tried to hunt down the graphic designer but can't get anywhere. A client wants this font for a poetry design.

Does anyone recognize this font or was it hand drawn? Thanks:)
