Where is "Helvetica Script?"

Forums: 

Hi gang! I only post infrequently, but I was puzzled about something lately and had to ask ... with all the riffs and homages to Helvetica over the years, hasn't anyone done a script version of the typeface? I assumed this would be simple to find, but after a bit of searching, I came up with nothing.

It seems to me that such a face could be not only beautiful (and in some ways, funny), but also fill what I perceive as a void of highly legible, non-expressive modern script faces.

I've attached a ridiculously rough sketch of what I'm talking about ... I'd love any leads to a face like this, and any opinions on whether such a face would be a terrible idea or not. Thanks!

Trying to ID this hand written font but having a hard time finding it! Need help ASAP!!!

I'm trying to duplicate a font that my company used for a client but our computer crashed and we lost all our font files. I've been searching high and low for this particular font...I get close but never anything that really nails it...i need help ASAP! I don't want to lose this super important client over not being able to find this font! Thank you everyone for your input and help with this!! Help me forum buddies...you're my only hope!!

Daphne by Georg Salden

Forums: 

Daphne was developed from a text written with a broad nib pen. A large number of calligraphic swashes are available for the strong and sharp-edged figures of Daphne Expert. They can be added to the letters via OpenType feature. Because many swashes fit on different characters, the combinations possible are endless. Alternate and complete swash characters offer additional options. An unique application for designers with a calligraphic instinct.

Storefront Pro release

Forums: 

We are proud to announce the release of Storefront.

Storefront is what the prolific and talented American sign painters of the 1920s and 1930s would have created if they had access to the advanced lettering and type technologies we have today. Rooted in an incomplete Alf Becker alphabet sample, Storefront is my usual overdose on alternates and swashes, my eternal attempt at giving typesetting that ever-elusive handmade impression.
