The perfect script fonts that add a personal touch to any design.

What I love in a script or calligraphy font has definitely changed over the years. I used to love high contrast, looped, brush pen-inspired faces, but now I prefer something a bit more organic. Here are some of my favorites that I think are perfect to pair or use on their own!

No. 1 The Yoshi

When I was designing Mugglehug Studio, The Yoshi font was in the top three choices for my secondary font (the winner was Amalfi Coast). Though it didn't work out for me, I can envision this in all sorts of romantic projects. I love how it is so delicate and looks like an old letter scrawled. Fortunately, nothing about this reminds me of the Mario character...

No. 2 Andrea Bilarosa

Andrea Bilarosa is definitely the most delicate of the fonts featured today, but I think it is such a modern version of more traditional calligraphic styles. The movement in the letters is amazing, and draws the eye forward. I see this on wedding invites and beyond!

No. 3 Houstiny

I LOVE THIS FONT. Every time I need a really cool handwritten script, this one always catches my amongst the others. I used it for The Rustic Green's branding and couldn't be happier with the result. It pairs so well with the typewriter font, but looks so elegant on its own.

No. 4 Barrington

Whenever I see this font, I chuckle because the Barrington, IL area is known for being super posh, and this font just signals that perfectly. It has that great bounce characteristic of modern calligraphy that I love. And it blends well with lots of other font styles, making it great for a variety of designs.
