About Biro Script Plus Font Family

An authentic script from the tip of the ball point pen.

This hasn’t been seen yet: A typeface which truly looks as if it were handwritten.

Calligraphy is, actually, the art of fine writing. And actually, written scripts as typeface for the computer are 100% nonsense. And yet, an obvious thought: Create a typeface which truly derives from everyday handwriting. And since we, if we write at all, utilize practically only a ball point pen anymore, then a modern cursive writing form must look like just that. As a counterpart to the artistic ”handwritings“ which have long been available as typeface, the thought of digitalizing a truly ”ugly“ handwriting is appealing. After all, time and again there is the need for a text to look ”handwritten“.

Biró Script is written freehand with a ball point pen. Finally a truly individual script!

Biró Script includes more than 300 authentic ligatures in addition to the customary alphabet.

By the way, the most convincing effect is obtained with a font size of about 18 to 22 points, at which the thickness of the stroke is now about the same as that of a real ball point pen.

There's a difference between the anglo-american forms of some characters (esp. the numerals 1 and 7, but also capitals I and F) and how it's written in the rest of the world. For those of us who aren’t used to the world-wide usual forms, Biró Script includes a US version with the appropriate characters.

About Ingo

Founded in 1994, ingoFonts provides the fonts designed and crafted by me, Ingo Zimmermann. I am a type design professional located in Augsburg, Germany, and working in corporate and editorial design. My very first fonts were stencils which I cut out of paperboard and used in graffiti. During my studies I began to publish my fonts under the label ingoFonts, and of all it started with a blackletter: ”Faber Fraktur.“ By now my designs include fonts of all styles, from classical to modern, script fonts, revivals of historic typefaces, Romans, sans serifs, decorative fonts, including fonts like ”Biró Script“, ”Absolut“ or ”Maier's Nr.8“, which seem to be growing quite popular since they've been published.
