Type Gallery – Escript
Font Designer: Hans-Jürgen Ellenberger, 1994
Escript™ is part of the TakeType Library, which features winners of Linotype’s International Digital Type Design Contest. Hans Jürgen Ellenberger designed this handwriting font with freshly, lively forms. Each letter has a slightly different character, yet all fit well together and this lack of concrete rules gives the font a spontaneous feel. Escript is well-suited to headlines, smaller texts, and inititals when combined with constructed typefaces.
