This new font feels like writing quickly with an inked brush.
When making digital typefaces, the more you refine the shapes of the letters, the more energy you take away from them. Because of that, Fast Brush Script is unrefined - and carries a lot of energy.
By avoiding typographical perfection, it stays more natural. The angles of the vertical strokes vary a little, and the positioning along the baseline jumps around, giving it a more rustic and natural feeling.
Most script fonts have long ascenders and descenders, and this means they look too small when used at normal sizes on the web. I will optimize this font in the technical details to be very readable as a web font, even when used as small as at 16 pixels.
The lowercase letters are now ready:
Download them now! Fast Brush Script Beta 08 has only these lowercase glyphs, but I invite you to take a closer look and play around!
If you love what you see, please pledge a donation so that I can complete the font! Caps, Numbers, Punctuation, diacritics, spacing and kerning all need to be finished.
If this project reaches the funding goal of $3,000, it will be published in Google Web Fonts with the Basic Latin character set. If it reaches beyond that goal, I will expand the character set further.
The Google Web Fonts experts will also review the technical details to ensure it works perfectly as a web font, and it will be hand-hinted by Google.
I will take 1 month to complete the Basic Latin character set, and then I will send out the project rewards.
Please note that your contribution will be paid to ‘TeX Users Group’ (firstname.lastname@example.org), a US based 501(c)3 non-profit who are kindly running a ‘Libre Font Fund.’ TUG enables me to receive the funds outside the USA, as I live in the beautiful city of Rosario, Argentina.
