The top 10 handwritten fonts you should already own
Looking across the internet, you will notice a surge in the use of handwritten fonts.
Advertisements, infographics, logos, billboards, product labels, social media and many more are examples where handwritten fonts are largely used. The traditional serif and sans-serif fonts have now been replaced by script fonts.
The reason for this is because of the uniqueness and randomness handwritten fonts provide. In addition, hand lettering and calligraphy across social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest have fed into the craze.
Coming to think of it, it’s great how we’re bringing back handwriting in the era of Dms and Snapchat.
Nowadays, every blogger and web designer should have a collection of their favorite handwritten fonts, that they have collected from across the internet, to use within their blogs and other design projects.
As a handwriting enthusiast, I too do have a collection of my own favorite handwritten fonts.
