Gloss Drop is a wild hand lettered typeface, that passed the process of digitization without losing the spontaneous vibrancy of brush lettering. With the power of OpenType it gets real close to what you normally do with ink, brush and paper. If you noticed the absence of 300 swashes and flourished caps, you’re right – this is not a Barbie Script dolled up for the next beauty contest. It is imperfection and naivety dripping from every letter that make this font stand out. An enviable choice for magazine headers, book covers or record covers. Works also well as a companion to hand-drawn or painted illustrations. Gloss Drop can even rock your Wedding designs if they are seeking for something that makes a difference.
Like in real handwriting, some, but not all, letters connect within a word. Automatic Positional OpenType features handle the choice of inital and final forms neighbouring a gap and choose the adequate medial or isolated forms. All you have to care for is to have the “Contextual Alternates” feature on in InDesign’s Character palette. If you then still find single repeating glyphs catching your eye, you can iron that out by toggling between Stylistic Alternates.
