New release: MARCEL, from Jeremia

Forums: 

Marcel is an angular upright and lightly backslant script typeface inspired by the natural shapes obtained when drawing a letter in marker pen or brush. It is inspired by the work of French type designer Marcel Jacno. This unique design later inspired many other typeface designers like Roger Excoffon with his ‘Banco’. I recommend to use it for any packaging design related to quality and hand-made products, advertising, web, posters, magazines and book jackets. Marcel is loaded with an extended character set, supporting Central, Western and Eastern European languages and plenty of cool OpenType features like brush underlines in different styles for each word length. Kerning and spacing (+ than 25,000 kerning pairs) have been meticulously made-to-measure to this specific brush font design.

New: HapticScript family by Henning Skibbe

Forums: 

The HapticScript family is a connected brush script with a warm, personal and soft character. The typeface family has five styles from Light through Black. It was designed as a companion and extension to the Haptic sans-serif family.

HapticScript has up to 14 variations for each glyph. The almost 2,000 characters per font including 40+ ligatures enable designers to give each word an individual look. Many swash characters for initials and word endings make words looks as if they were hand lettered.

Five Styles: Light, Regular, Semibold, Bold and Black

OpenType features: Ligatures, Contextual Alternates, Stylistic Sets, Old Style figures, Tabular figures

Chefscript

Chefscript Typeface - Buy licenses at MyFont
Chef Script is an experimental font designed by Carlos Fabian Camargo G. Its fantasy design contains 1463 glyphs to compose words, phrases and short messages on small and large sizes. The idea was born in a sketchbook that was perfected again by hand and achieving "non-neutral drawings" on tracing paper. With bezier digitization the empty and full parts of letters appeared with soft and eloquent curves as calligraphic result produces optimal readability.

Beefcakes - first of the "Cakes" series coming for TypeCon August 20th...

Over a year ago I started thinking of new font names, er...a theme of different font names for a different family of different styles :P At last, Beefcakes is in the final stages and is scheduled for release on August 20th, w00t! It is the first of the "Cakes" series, a collection of display fonts inspired by various brush lettering styles. The series will include Beefcakes, Babycakes, Hotcakes, Paddycakes and Sweetcakes, and as each typeface is unique (not to mention time-consuming to draw!) they will be released as they're finished...

cheers,
Jim

New from insigne: Caridade

Forums: 

Caridade is a bold and powerful script face. It draws some inspiration from heavy brush drawn vintage hand lettering but its heavy weight is much thicker with plenty of impact and more contemporary letterforms. The face offers a wide array of weights, from the powerful Heavy weight to the graceful Thin.

Caridade can get the job done for many unique design tasks.

(x) First post, Need help with a typeface. - Sprint {Ben C}

I have a rush job of making separations for screen printing that I took on as a favor and I'm not sure what typeface this is. I also don't want to have to take the time to pen tool it if I don't have to.

If possible, I'd like a starting point for "Sand Gnats." I've exhausted my font collection as well as a free site or two's script inventories with no luck.
