Intelligent Script

Hey all,

Looking for a realistic handwritten script similar to Mr Porter's fantastic typeface.
(as you can see all over http://www.mrporter.com/)

An intelligent typeface that changes characters within the same letter is a big +.
Hurt your brains and I will be thankful forever!

Suomi Hand is, I guess, a standard in that genre by now. It's also very good.

Also Olicana.

Thanks Riccardo.

And also this.

You've really raised the bar Nick, both technically and aesthetically (by doing your own contemporary hand, what a concept!)

But we really need to educate the consumer more.
Just this morning I saw a large ad in my national newspaper for Starbucks set in a stupid script font.
Rather obvious, the word "coffee".
This for a blue-chip international megacorp handled by an expensive agency, but with crap typography nonetheless.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic Nick, the bit in brackets leads me to believe you are.

It's probably not a patch on Handsome or Duffy, but I'm sure it has legs.

Sarcasm directed at revivalists, not you.
I've been contemplating taking it to the next level with a font of my handwriting, which is what Rollerscript does.
