Gray Skies: a fun casual script font

by Missy Meyer in Fonts / Script

Description

Introducing Gray Skies, a new connecting script font! It all started with the letter Y -- instead of a loop at the bottom, I drew a kind of zig-zag smiling-mouth shape. That weird loop ended up inspiring a lot of the other characters, and a new script font was born!

As usual, this font is packed with features:

  • Uppercase A-Z, lowercase a-z, numbers 0-9, and a full set of punctuation

  • Over 350 accented and extended characters for language support, including Æ, æ, Œ, œ, and ß

  • Alternates for lowercase a-z (mapped to Stylistic Alternates in OpenType coding, and also included in the separate Gray Skies Alternates file)

  • 38 double- and triple-letter ligature sets (mapped to Ligatures in OpenType coding, and also included in the separate Gray Skies Alternates file)

  • 10 bonus flourishes and swashes in the Alternates file - type them separately and attach them anywhere for a little extra flair!

  • A handy PDF guide to all of the alternate characaters

  • Every letter is PUA-encoded, to ensure easy Character Map/Font Book access
