March Font Crushes


I’m starting a monthly round-up of my current favorite fonts! Right now, I’m big on handmade brush fonts and I chalk it up to my complete lack of talent in calligraphy and lettering (it’s not like I’ve tried to learn, but I just know it’s going to be pointless or take too much time).

Hopefully, we’ll help each other discover new fonts with each round-up!

Amelian Script

Amelian Script

Bold and inspired by vintage script letterings, you can get Amelian Script here.

Manhattan Darling

Manhattan Darling

Irene tweeted about using this font for one of her design projects over the weekend and I was fortunate enough to be checking my phone in between beers. You can get Manhattan Darling here.



It was love at first sight with Manticore! I like how it’s a little edgy and grungy.



Peinture is the brush font in my blog header. Isn’t it pretty! I think it looks very natural, too.

Wanderlust Letters


Wanderlust is everywhere on the internet but that’s because it’s such a beautiful font! Get it here.

What are your favorite handmade brush fonts? :)

    Thank you for sharing Helga. I can’t buy them right now but browsing these fonts are so therapeutic!

    • Reply Helga March 5, 2015 at 1:26 pm

      @Chester, Sometimes, I just go on MyFonts, pick a font, set the color, type the word/phrase I want, save the image, and then open it on Photoshop HAHAHAHAHAHA it doesn’t work with light-colored text, though.
