5 Free Feminine Script Fonts
I recently worked on a website for All Dolled Up in which I created some images that had a feminine script (handwritten) font on some of the images. I love searching for new fonts, it’s a bit of an obsession for me so I thought I’d share my findings with you!
Now, a little note on how I’m going to talk about these. If you know me at all, you will know that a lot of my work is very intuitive. I’m not one to try and sound overly smart. I’m here to make websites and design understandable. So, that’s how I talk about typography too. I studied it, I’ve read books on it, quite simply, I love it, but the thing I love the most: The way it makes you feel.
So I’ll be talking about the way it FEELS.
Also note, when you look through, they may look similar, but trust me, when you start playing with your designs, they are SO DIFFERENT! For all Dolled Up I tried the total of 13 different fonts! Because I just have to get that perfect feel.
So without further adieu, here are 5 Free Feminine Script Fonts I found (I’ve saved may favourite last, so make sure you scroll down!):
What is not to love about this chic script font! It’s playful, sophisticated and flows beautifully between each letter. I feel instantly stylish just looking at it.
2. Golden Plains
An issue you can run into with script fonts is many can be quite illegible once you try them out. However, I found Golden Plains has a great readability. This is dues to its compact structure, and less wild swirls but don’t think for a second this takes away from its impact. Take a peek at how I’ve used it on All Dolled Up’s website here!
3. Beyond Infinity
Like Golden Plains above, I love Beyond Infinity’s legibility! Though at first glance these fonts may be similar to you, take a look at the capital letters. Beyond Infinity has much more of a ball point tip going on where as Golden Plains has a brush stroke.
For me, there is a little too much of a digital feeling to Beyond Infinity which is why I didn’t end up using it.
4. RUN WILD
Playful, cute, and quirky. Run Wild is a simple, understated yet a perfect script font. This is the font to choose when you need that handwritten feel but not over the top on the feminine / editorial feel.
5. La Paloma
My favourite! What is not to love about La Paloma! Free flowing, stylish, editorial scrapbook feel, I think every stroke is delicious! It makes me want to find my favourite words and write them all up just to see how gorgeous they look. I feel though the font has a stylish editorial feel, there is a playful bounce to the lettering that keeps things upbeat and not too serious. I can’t wait till I have a project I can use it on.
