Take me to the river handmade script

by Itsmesimon in Fonts / Script


My aim with Take me to the River was to create an irregular feeling with how the letters flow. I wanted the letters to join, but in a more unorthodox or kooky style. So its a cursive font with a twist.

The eccentric style might not be your thing—but I love it.

Each glyph was painted using a Chinese calligraphy brush dipped into a pot of black Indian ink.

The brush helped create a more dynamic, hand-drawn look and feel. The strokes are bold and have a motion to them.

Take me to the River is ideal for a variety of designs. Anything from wedding invites, branding and packaging to posters, book covers and stationery.

Mix uppercase with the lowercase letters to create a real quirky design.
