Can you believe it's already the second week of August?! I can't believe how quickly summer is passing by - I honestly don't know where all the time has gone. It's been about 4 weeks since my last font collection series post and decided it was time for my 3rd one. So far I've done script and clean fonts and this post will focus on handwritten ones. Handwritten fonts have become more popular in the past year or so - particularly for weddings. More recently I've typically seen handwritten fonts utilized for rustic/barn-type themed weddings either in the invitations or the general decor.
Handwritten fonts serve their purpose in design as well as blogging and can be great for representing brands. A good examples of these are child care centers or charities. Companies or individuals wanting to stand out creativly such as fashion designers or photographers, may also benefit from these fonts. If you do choose a handwritten font, make sure it is clearly legible, as scaling it across device screens can make it completely useless otherwise. A major problem I've come across is the over use of these fonts can make your design appear childish. If this isn't the look you're going for I would suggest to proceed with caution.
