Which (bold) monoline scripts exist except of Monoline Script?
Kaufmann Script comes to mind immediately. As does Nick Shinn's Handsome Bold Letraset's Santa Fe is very clean. And Typodelic's Natural Script Bold isn't too bad. Neil Summerour's Luce probably isn't as bold as you need, but it's definitely monolinear. Gilles Gothic is probably a bit too displayish.
I love this forum for the quick and helpful inspirational responses. Thanks Grant and Stephen! Santa Fe is the direction I'm going for. It's more generic, constructed than the nice "Handsome". But the "e" ... . French Letters looks good to me in the lower letters. Poppl-College and Signal (a little bit to edgy) are cool, Tarantula is supercool,except of some too postmodern features like the "V". I'm thinking of making a logoish monoline script font. Perhaps it could also look a little bit painted. Something like a bold template handwriting. It's gonna be used for a serious of logos in an art project. I just want to check: Whats in this field of "template handwriting"? Do you know more contemporary logos based on (custom) handwriting?
Thanks again, I don't know if I like the "U" but I like the lettering. Whodunnit?
Santa Fe looks more like neon to me than handwriting. If you're going for a hand painted look you could try some of House Industries sign painter collection.
> Whodunnit? Actually it was Wolff-Olins not Landor. The U was designed by one Miles Newlyn. The script, I'm not sure.
terital from Letterbox is a nice one, no uppercase though.
yes, terital is cool. I like the letterbox-logo too.
Nice list, Grant.

Dave Farey's French Letters
Poppl-College is very interesting, as is Signal - too bad you can only buy them from scoundrels
More contemporary: Van Dijk
MeMimas by Spain's Type-Ø-tones is cute as heck. Martha Stewart Baby magazine uses the regular version for its logo.
Sinclair is almost monolinear and a great example of an underused brush script
Colin Brignall's Harlow is sort of a rounded Gilles
Another round-nibbed speedballer: Tarantula Script
Wendy, ITC Clover and Hairspray for a prissy touch
Unilever's redesign is a very recent example.
Big fat Landor.
Do you think I should maybe read the articles before I link to them? Miles! Another Typophile poster!
