Script fonts are created based on the varied and fluid stroke in handwriting. Generally, there are two styles of script writing. One is formal script writing, which is very similar to cursive writing. This kind of script writing mimics the letter forms of 17th and 18th century writing masters and the letters look like as if they were generated by a quill or metal nib of a pen. Script fonts of this kind are usually used in fancy invitations, greeting cards, certificates, wedding preparations. Another type is casual script writing, which tends to be less formal and looser and has wider strokes. Casual script writing can be seen in advertising, entertainment. For example, the logo of famous TV series American Idol uses a modified typeface called Kaufman as their logo, which is a script font of casual style. The popular Australian soap opera Neighbours once used a script font called Brush Script in its opening title designs.
Feel Script designed by Alejandro Paul is a typical font family in cursive script writing. According to the designer, the font is based on the lettering that calligrapher and logo designer Rand Holub created for Intertype for his face Monterey. Feel Script contains more than 1200 glyphs including stylistic alternates, contextual alternates, titling alternates, swashes, and ligatures.
