Free Font Friday: Dancing Script
by Taylor Slattery | July 10, 2020
Dancing Script is a script typeface designed by Impallari Type. Etsy and Pinterest have forever changed the way we see and use script typefaces. For this reason, despite being inspired by more classic script typefaces from the 50s, Dancing Script feels fairly fresh and modern. Upon first glance, it’s easy to imagine a number of different uses, making this typeface a worthwhile addition to any collection.
Script typefaces have an interesting quality about them that results from their more human, handmade appearance. This places them on a spectrum ranging from cute and friendly, like an invitation to a baby shower, to incredibly rigid and formal, like a black-tie event. Dancing Script leans more towards the former. It has a degree of imperfection that gives it a playful, carefree vibe.
