To continue this rich and lively pace, letters are not systematically connected. Many so-called ligatures in Scripto are born from the unforced continuation of shapes into their sympathetic neighbors. However, in rare cases, such as doubled letters, ligatures were designed to emphasize animation and variety in the setting.
A charming demonstration of Franck Jalleau's skills, Scripto is contemporary typographic writing, vivid and brisk, reflecting its author's personality. It is also a timeless typeface that has roots and influences in cursive alphabets of ancient Rome. Initially designed in 1996, the typeface was awarded a first prize at the Morisawa competition.
