Lobster Two

Lobster needs no introduction, it has become one of the most ubiquitous scripts on the planet in the last few years. Version two gives you the choice between bold and thin versions.

Berkshire Swash

I really love the ornamental nature of this typeface, the letters are big, bold and beautifully curvy. Use this if you want to convey an old world feel.

Merienda One

Merienda isn’t my favorite but it certainly has its uses. The letters have a brushed feeling with sharp directionality that conveys motion well.

Pacifico

Pacifico is just a great, round and loopy script that really has a unique feel to it. It’s hard to find a thick script with such nice curves and so much character so be sure to bookmark this one.

Just Another Hand

If you’re looking for something that looks truly handwritten, Just Another Hand is a good choice. To throw a visual curve ball, I used shadows to give it a 3D effect, but it looks great (or even better) even without them.

Arizonia

Arizonia has an awesome flowing feel with wide arcs and smooth strokes. It’s a great logo typeface and really doesn’t feel like something you’d expect to be available as a live web font.

Cookie

Cookie has a sort of feminine fairy tale charm that makes it a great font for story headlines and the like. The next time you need a whimsical feel, you should try it out.

Great Vibes

Great Vibes is a very ornate script like Arizonia, but a little more thin and sophisticated. The letter forms are really beautiful and are sure to attract attention.

Leckerli One

Leckerli One is fat and utilitarian. It’s fairly masculine as far as scripts go and perfect for big, bold statements.
