It’s only been a few months since lettering artist and illustrator Laura Worthington made her successful MyFonts debut with Recherche, and already we have a lovely follow-up in Origins. Origins is a semi-connected calligraphic font with a confident, regular flow. Based on hand-lettering with a Crow Quill pen on parchment paper, it has natural, rough outlines that contribute to its subtly antiquated look and feel. Origins features gracious ascenders and descenders for an elegant and somewhat formal look. With 140 alternate characters and ornaments, the font is a versatile toolkit to create unique headlines, titling, invitations, branding and more.
For a collection of similarly styled, hand-lettered catchphrases, check out Worthington’s Greeting Cards font.
The click’n'jump-ligature style that was seen in some commercial 1960s lettering has suddenly become a new craze in digital display type. After fonts like Sinzano or (outside MyFonts) Ed Interlock, Finland’s Fenotype has now released a soft and chubby variation on the same theme. Billboard is a family of six fonts: three weights, a condensed and an outlined version. The family members all have a load of ligatures to make customized settings for every word. To access these ligatures, use an OpenType-aware layout application and write in CAPS.
