(x) Looking for "Fat Scripts" - various {gang}

Hi Guys,

Anybody know of any fonts like/along the same lines as these


I'm after a "fat script" sort of feel. I realise that the logo above is not a font but that is the sort of feel I am after for a logo myself

( I just had to know, and post, this, Tiffany, Othmar Motter is a fellow Austrian.. )

Oh, and my brandnew favourite 'fat script' has to be 'Geetype', by Nick Cooke / G-Type..
( Since it has been posted at Typographica.. )

Sorry to point out to FontShop people, but Stilla is a typeface designed by Fran

I was just going to point this out, too. I mean, R. Hunter Middleton was 75 in 1973 and was most active about 40 years earlier. I've seen this incorrect attribution on every site that sells or has information about Stella.

I have a copy of the Letraset catalog from 1984 which contains the following credit line with Stilla and Stilla Caps: "Fran

Thanks for the memories of booth type designers, and specially for F Boltana who died really too early...

Eclat is always a good choice.

More organic, but no less fun:

Less 'fat script', but a lovely 'fat' one, nonetheless, 'Robusto', by George Ryan / Galapagos.:

And, some more 'fat scripts'.: 'Bernhard Brushscript', 'Kolinsky Sable' ( Spiece Graphics ), 'Futura Script' ( Elsner+Flake ), 'Mr Sheppards' ( Sudtipos ), 'Milkman', 'Ballpark Script' ( Letterhead Fonts ), 'Jolly Roger' ( Red Rooster )..

Yep, Sauna is a great one. As a matter of fact I like ALL of Underware's fonts -- I'm trying to use them all for logo's for new clients (two down, two to go...).

Thanks guys,

Some great fonts here - really like the 'Milkman', 'Ballpark Script (thanks Dav(id) Hubner) and the Goudy Heavyface Italic (Yves Peters) just the type i was looking for..

Anymore would be appreciated for futrue reference.

thanks again

I will need to take some time and comb through these posts again to see if there are any of these that I need to add to the Script Font ID Guide.

There are many other fat scripts in Parts 7 and 8 of the Guide , especially from SignDNA, Art & Sign (Signfonts.com) and Nick Curtis (also some in Part 6, and maybe even 5, depending on your definition of 'script').

The second looks like some sort of Cooper Black and the top is Candace ... I believe.

Whaddayaknow: guess what comes with the most recent QuarkXPress
update*, amongst a bunch of bland fonts? Indeed: Stilla! Wikkid ...

Yeah, I know, don't ask, it's my employer who makes me use it ... :-(

Thanks for the alert, boys. I'll make sure it gets changed.

Say Stewf, is there a place where we can report bugs like this one?

Back on topic: if you like Cooper Black Italic, Oz Black Italic and
Sauna Black Italic Swash, don't forget Goudy Heavyface Italic.
Slightly swashy, with a delicious lc 'g', 'k' & 'z' amongst others.
