Font Family: Bird Script, Number of fonts: 1*OTF, Type Foundry: Lián Types, Designer: Maximiliano Sproviero, Design date: 2013
Characterized by quickness, lightness, and ease of movement, Bird Script is a font which challenges many aspects of type-design: every single stroke, comes directly from the authorís hand and tries to reflect not only the tool used, but also his feelings at the moment of writing.
Bird Script is a font filled up with the energic gestures of what itís called gestural calligraphy, a not very explored field in typography, where hardly ever a letter comes the same way two times: When manipulating the pen, the letterer seeks for the beauty of the differences and the grace of a confident execution.
Originally done with a flat speedball pen nib nº5 and retouched with pencil for the bolder elements, it turned into a very pleasant to the eyes font which dances between the formal rules of typography and the artistic look of calligraphy.
Bird Script Pro and Bird Script Light Pro come with many ligatures, alternates and ornaments. Into the standard ligatures we find lots of pairs of two and three ligated letters so when they are activated the font seems alive.
However if none of them are activated, the font gives a really particular text pattern, specially in smaller sizes.
