Fave Font

Fave Font

The hand-brushed Fave Set has ten informal scripts and other handwritten fonts, made up of two subfamilies: Fave and the even more informal Fave Casual. Each has a primary script with a bold version and three other handwritten faces, for a total of ten typefaces spanning the casual spectrum. All are also optimized for extensive type use, so they look as good up close as they do set at smaller sizes.

OpenType features The Fave family has a few features that happen mainly in the background. All fonts use the OpenType Standard Ligature feature to automatically differentiate consecutive lowercase letters and numbers (using separate glyphs). Like our previous release, Turbinado, they automatically differentiate characters from other letters.

Alternate characters The script fonts have alternate uppercase and lowercase characters, including multiple t (and double t) crossbar alternates, which can be selected from the OpenType glyph table. Enable the Contextual Alternates feature to automatically insert a bigger crossbar as the surrounding letters allow throughout a text box or document. You can also make your custom lowercase t and crossbar to fit any situation–all lowercase t ascenders and crossbars are available separately in the OpenType glyph table and can be combined and moved around manually.
 Stylistic sets and other goodies: Fave Script and its bold counterpart have two Stylistic Sets. When enabled, one automatically substitutes non-connecting alternate characters at the ends of words, and the other substitutes even bigger t crossbars than the Standard Ligature feature.

Smart apostrophes and ligatures Other subtle but hopefully helpful features include smart apostrophes, which insert themselves between two script characters in everyday situations without breaking their connection, and a few ligatures that also make character connections more seamless.
