About Marleen Script Font Family

An authentic style of feminine handwriting with a pencil

Who still writes by hand? And who still writes nicely? What constitutes beautiful handwriting anyway?

In Marleen Script nearly 100 stylistic alternates for individual letters and more than 400 ligatures are included.

With these options it is finally possible to convincingly simulate the effect of true handwriting with a typeface.

So, the form of the single character seldom repeats itself since it is mostly replaced with a ligature; and, with each combination of characters the result is a slightly different form of the individual character. Type set in Marleen Script appears remarkably similar to a text actually handwritten with a pencil.

The characters of Marleen Script have intentionally been digitalized as a bit loose and irregular.

Stylistic alternates are available for many of the letters, some even with various alternates to choose from, in order to produce a font with a very lively appearance.

This typeface also fills a completely different kind of gap: finally, a ”typically female“ font. Spirited capital letters, the tendency toward loops and the obvious inclination toward the left are all common characteristics of ”female scripts.“

The original for Marleen Script was created by Marleen Baumann from Augsburg in the spring of 2010 using a sharp pencil on rough handmade paper. In spite of irregularities, this font is aesthetical. Although most people rarely put forward an effort with their handwriting, in Marleen Script one can see the desire for an attractive form.

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.
