Part of the fun of working in design in the range of styles and occasions we get to create for. And sometimes, you just have to put on your fancy duds and dress up.
When that time comes, consider Niconne by UK typographer Vernon Adams, based on a 1925 cursive typeface called Bernhard Cursive. With a script-like look but unconnected letters, it’s a great choice when you need a font that’s on the fancy side, but not too ornate. This one retains its readability well and would look fantastic in print. Download free from Font Squirrel.
Love a more organic look? You’ll adore Mightype by AF Studio. The hand-drawn typeface comes with plenty of swirls and swashes. The added adornments make it a nice fit for wedding or party invitations, social media graphics or promotions, or any application where a style that’s a little whimsical would suit.
