To relax a little on the week-end, lay back and check out a little typographic inspiration. If you like typography, make sure to check our Typography Daily blog.

Quickpen

Quickpen is casual and carefree, designed to re-create the look of confident, quickly-jotted script with a felt-tip pen or brush. In OpenType, ligatures and contextual alternates for lowercase letters add a natural hand-written look, while swashes lend a bit more finesse. The perfect script for any design that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
