A collection of script fonts, or properly called script typefaces, that bring the the fluid stroke nature of the handwritten style in an compact form.
There is nothing more personal then a hand written message. It shows that you care, that you actually put some time into the writing of that message. And the best part about it, is that not too many have the same looking handwritten style, it brings personality into the picture.
Character, personality, individuality, are all qualities distinctive to an strong individual or strong design. All of these features can be brought in with a well design layout.
But what if you would focus only on the font(ya, I said font and not typeface)?
Keep it clean, keep it minimal as possible and just let the design breath.
I started to explore lettering in my visual identity projects, and soon found out that sometimes they take more time that I ever have. To compensate for the time factor, I approached script fonts that deliver that personality.
Some of my favorite fonts are in this collection and would like to share them with you. Who knows, maybe you could use them in your future design projects.

And soon they’re all laughing and dancing up and down the baseline.
