New Fonts, February 2012

February brought us loads of great new faces, a bit heavy on novelty, but not without its finds. Here are three script faces that stood out to us, and if you’re still left wanting, see the complete list. Now on to the good stuff.

In Filmotype Havana, Charles Gibbons masterfully gives new life to this casual signage hand from the mid-20th century.

Feel Script by Alejandro Paul of Sudtipos brings back some of the wonder of 1950s-era ad lettering.

Stephen Rapp’s Shoebop similarly explores a fifties feel, but carries itself with an awkward adolescent gait. Though highly expressive, the letterforms’ introverted gestures are careful not to stick out too much.
