Let’s find out the Handmade designs in this bundle.
Fonts by Megatype
Megatype includes five modern calligraphy font designs in the bundle. All five fonts have that laid-back feel to them. They exude elegance and class. Such style makes these fonts a perfect fit for wedding invitations, branding, book covers, logos, and posters.
Here are some of the gorgeous scripts created by Megatype:
1. Reading Signature Font
This signature style font looks casual and elegant at the same time. With natural flowing curves, it is flexible, efficient and expressive of a brand’s unique style – that is, if it is all about femininity. This font comes with exquisite characters and includes Monoline, Regular and Bold.
2. Prestiquen Script
A modern calligraphy font, the Prestiquen Script comes with soft swashes that make this font look beautiful. Compared to Reading Signature, it is narrower. It also has a slightly more defined thick to thin contrast that makes it feel more natural. The tail designs tilt upward. Designers won’t have to worry about it weighing down the text.
3. Kamelia Script
The Kamelia is a loose-handed script that’s not too messy and not too casual. Much like the rest of Megatype’s fonts in the collection, the Kamelia has pretty swashes. This script has two varieties: Regular and Bold.
4. Gebrina Script
This font is intricate as well as beautiful, but it isn’t all too formal. It feels lively and expressive. Much like other modern style fonts, the swashes and other details are quite elaborate. Megatype’s Gebrina Script only comes in Regular.
5. Bethanya Script
Bethanya doesn’t need superfluous swashes to impress. Compared to the rest of Megatype’s handmade designs in this collection, it doesn’t need to flaunt all the extra details to evoke emotion. It can still bring personality and authenticity to any design despite being more laid-back than the rest of the scripts.
Fonts by Hederae Type Foundry
Hederae Type Foundry’s handmade designs straddle the line between modern and classic. They bring you bold and elegant fonts that can be used in print designs or for the web.
Here are a few of their best fonts and typefaces:
1. Liber v2
It is named after the Latin term for ‘absolute’, liber. It alludes to geometric patterns that used to make up the fundamentals of text fonts. Liber, however, was designed for modern use. It’s meant to have that harmonious appearance. It will be right at home in editorial and signage work and this handmade design collection can also be used for branding.
2. Fibon Neue Family
Inspired by the Fibon Sans, Hederae Type Foundry created a sans-serif family of 8 weights that are more modern and versatile. They improved its structure and made it look more balanced. With its low contrast and smooth characters, they made it easily adaptable to web or print applications.
3. Chamfort Family
The most flexible typeface in this bunch is the Chamfort family. Since it was designed specifically for web use, this solid typeface is legible even in small sizes. It should fit branding, headlines, posters and the like. You have 12 fonts to choose from.
4. Cuciniere Font
This all-new font is geared towards food lovers. Cuciniere has mostly uppercase characters and only a few lowercase letters. It also features 40 cute hand-drawn icons of food such as pasta and desserts.
5. Regime Grotesk
Influenced by Italian graphic design from the ’20s and the ’30s, Regime Grotesk inherits the sloping S and low crossbars. Both characteristics were prominent in fascist regime propaganda aesthetic, but today’s designers will appreciate this flexible, clear and crisp font. With its modern look, it should have no trouble fitting in the various sectors of the corporate world.
