There are coincidences in life that define the fortunes of certain creations. Such was the case with Hazel Script – the latest font, designed by Dave Rowland of Schizotype foundry. The process of its creation coincided with the birth of his daughter. The name Hazel was given to both the little girl and the script itself. Of course, giving the font this name means that it should meet the highest type design demands and be unique, as the little Hazel undoubtedly is. And, by simply taking a look at the typeface, we can immediately say that it is exactly the case.
Hazel Script is a masterly drawn contemporary display font family most characteristic with its stylish and elegant appearance. To achieve such a look Dave Rowland employed several means. First, he used a very peculiar contrast pattern that is unique and contributes a lot to Hazel Script aesthetics and rhythm. Then come the distinctive, slightly over-sized upper case letters and the great swashes that will add exquisiteness to any text. Of course, as a modern typeface, Hazel Script offers a lot of extras that will help making any project more completed. Those of the users that have access to OpenType compatible software will gain access to juicy features such as swashes, alternates, ligatures, localized forms, ordinals, automatic fractions, etc. With all its unique characteristics Hazel script could be perfect for special occasion items like wedding stationery, letterheads, greeting cards and, of course, birth announcements.
As it was mentioned above Hazel Script is designed by the UK designer Dave Rowland and is released by his one-man foundry Schizotype. It is yet another gem in his treasure of mainly display fonts some of which you can see here:
