In this post I do my best to share some of the most versatile fonts that I feel will make excellent design chum for the next year. Enjoy!
When is it appropriate to use a script font?
First of all – definitely when you’re feeling fancy 😉 But also – seriously, script fonts are perfect when you want something more expressive, and with the right font – elegant.
Or it can just be fun – free, and flowing. Choose your fonts wisely – in design – fonts are some of the most critical tools. You get them right and your design has a 50% more likelihood of coming of well-designed.
Brand Inline Pro smacks of extremely well thought out design that updates it’s swashes as you type words. It’s almost a bit more intelligent than I’m currently sure of how they build in. I’m sure it just updates the letters if it’s not the first or last perhaps. Excellent font, and highly stylish.

Brand Shade Pro, really helps you understand why the font-family is called Brand. There are several other variations but these two stick out to me as front-runners. Brand is easily quickly a possibility for a real sexy wordmark, but of course these script fonts are so sticky sweet sometimes that they can grow to be overused and thus lose their awesomeness. As it stands.. this font is no “Lobster” (Lobster is the new Comic Sans,) it’s still a fresh new look for 2015.

Charcuterie Cursive has it’s place amongst the rest, but it’s by no means my favorite. It simply has a bit different look that could be of use for different projects. This was also featured on my favorite handwritten fonts post.
Lakesight is probably the freshest of the fresh. To me what makes this a “best of the best Script Fonts 2015” font is that it doesn’t mirror any other fonts that I’ve seen, but has a particular uniqueness that pushes it to the next level. Particularly as you can see in this delightful usage where it’s used at an angle.

Lust Script pushes out the wideness factor and really gives a lovely alternative to many of the Wisdom scripts and thirsty roughs of the world.

Rolling Pen is so good. Many of the ways they show it being used, show it looking as though it’s one of those fluorescent lamps that you see on stores. It looks dope, but I see it in much broader uses as well. You can put a light 2 or 3-pixel outline around it and it transforms it into a bit bolder version of itself, or just use the original version. Rolling pen is likely one of the most versatile fonts in this article that I have used, and plan to use over and over again.
