Happy, Happy, Happy July! July has always been when it REALLY starts to feel like summer...Today, I bring you another font I fell in love with and hunted down. I found this site for the magazine I AM MODERN while looking for cool modern (aka not lame or Disney related) night lights for the boys. Guess which part I love the most...yep, the retro script font. I swear, sometimes I am surprisingly mysterious, but others, it's like I have it embossed on my forehead. I can't hide the stuff I truly love, why would I want to?
Ok, so it's a SUDTIPOS and by King Ale himself, so in all actuality it didn't take me that long. But honestly, Alejandro Paul and Jessica Hische are the only designers that have that certain savoir faire that I immediately get a "hint" and go see their collections to find them. Usually, I just open a window with the font I am trying to find, and another window with a font website, pop the phrase/word in the text preview and scroll by type of font. This one was a breeze, because I searched by SUDTIPOS. Took me a total of 2 mins. I was quite pleased with myself. So here it is. MOUSSE SCRIPT, isn't it pretty?
I have a question for my font pals out there...What is an alternate cut? I clicked the tab at MyFonts.com and this pops up... GLENGARY NF. So, I get that they are both based on a vintage handdrawn font from Stephanson Blake in 1932, but how does that work? GLENGARY is insanely cheap, and it doesn't seem fair to MOUSSE...Can one of you explain this to me? Is this typical of revival fonts?
I hope everyone has a fantastic Fourth! Have Fun! Since today is pretty much shot for productivity at work, go check out my font friends to see what lovelies they have rounded up.
