Background

Literally years in the making, Metroscript is an outgrowth of a style of letterform that Michael Doret has used in his design work literally dozens of times, usually for connecting words such as “and the”, “from”, etc. This style has been described as a “baseball” or “sports” script“which is true•€“but its applicablity is really much wider than that.

Created in OpenType, Metroscript is chock full of features that will expand its usability such as; 6 different tail styles with variable lengths; letters that “know” when they’re at the beginning or at the end of a word or following a certain other letter“and change accordingly; plus literally dozens of special characters, swashes, ligatures, accents and foreign characters all fitting together in a way that makes each word seem as if it was lettered by hand.
