Created by Franck Jalleau, Scripto is a script font released by BAT Foundry.

While type is frequently considered fixed and mechanical, the dynamics and liberty of handwriting have actually constantly notified typeface designers. Franck Jalleau developed Scripto to bring brand-new seriousness to those ancient concerns. It is the fruit of research study into brand-new rhythms, and the symptom of gesture and its resulting trace. It steers far from typical cursive typefaces and takes some liberty in that respect: in Scripto, slope is not constant, instead there is a great range of steepness, angles, and counterangles. The silhouette of each word is made by putting together characters with various postures and energies.

To continue this abundant and lively rate, letters are not systematically linked. Lots of so-called ligatures in Scripto are born from the unforced continuation of shapes into their understanding neighbors. Nevertheless, in unusual cases, such as doubled letters, ligatures were designed to stress animation and range in the setting.

A captivating demonstration of Franck Jalleau's skills, Scripto is modern typographic writing, vibrant and brisk, reflecting its author's personality. It is also an ageless typeface that has roots and affects in cursive alphabets of ancient Rome. At first designed in 1996, the typeface was granted a very first reward at the Morisawa competition.
