Description
Metroscript is a completely original typeface that is designed in the spirit of hand-lettering from the first half of the 20th century. Michael Doret had been doing hand-lettering in styles similar to Metroscript in his work for many years before realizing that he could actually design a font that would finally nail down this style, and be almost indistinguishable from hand-lettering. There was no one single inspiration for Metroscript: rather it is an amalgam of many different scripts that were popular hand-lettered styles between the 1920s and the 1950s. Metroscript is suggestive of vintage sports ephemera - especially when tails are added to words - but is also appropriate in many other contexts. It's many ligatures, swashes, alternates, foreign accented characters and tails- all of which connect seamlessly set it apart from most other script fonts.
