On the other end of the spectrum, handwritten and hand-lettered fonts continue to bring a homespun, casual charm to every design they grace. As wildly distinct as every person’s handwriting, each hand-written font is a unique snowflake. While hand-lettered fonts have been loopy and clean in past years, we’re seeing an uptick in more casual, brush stroke fonts that have a little more edge and feel as if they were plucked straight from the era of sign painters. Running the gambit from feminine scripts to more masculine, scratchy handwriting, we can expect to see a continued proliferation of hand-written type on posters and invitations, in logos and product design, and all over popular book covers.
