Roadhouse Blues handmade script font

by It's me simon in Fonts / Script

Description

Roadhouse Blues is a handmade script typeface with swashes and alternative glyphs that make it look more realistic and natural.

It has a naive quality that gives it a kind of innocence. It's decorative swashes give it a friendly retro vibe that harks back to an early American style when everything was hand made.

If this font were a celebrity it would be more Jim Morrison than James Woods.

Opentype features

To make the most out of this font you will need a design application that supports OpenType.

The lowercase glyphs have 3 contextual alternatives. Each letter has a start, middle and end letter that have a subtle difference. If you enable contextual alternatives they will be automatically changed as you type.

The uppercase letters have a start and end swash that are also automatically changed if you enable swashes.

Both upper and lowercase characters have a generous sprinkling of stylistic alternatives that can be accessed via your glyphs panel in your design application.

Font Usage

In my examples, I've used Roadhouse Blues in a serious way but it could be used for casual designs like illustrations, invites, packaging, logos stationary, fashion and many others.

What's included?

  • Uppercase and lowercase letters
  • Numbers, Punctuation & Symbols
  • Swashes, stylistic and contextual alternatives
  • Western, Central and South-Eastern European characters
  • Font format is OTF

If you need any help or have questions just ask.
