Winner: Type Design Certificate of Excellence – TDC² 2010 Competition
Winner: Typeface Design – Communication Arts Typography Annual 1
Although Deliscript Upright and Deliscript Slant were initially inspired by the neon sign in front of Canter’s Delicatessen in Los Angeles, the design of these fonts soon took on a life of its own–and their own distinctive look.
Like its sibling Metroscript, Deliscript has many features that expand its usability—such as the the variable length tails which can be accessed in 6 different styles, and the unique crossbars which can be extended outward in either direction from the "t" character. Throw in the special "WordLogos", tons of ligatures and foreign accented characters, and you have a recipe for typesetting that approaches the look of hand-lettering.
PLEASE NOTE: When setting Deliscript one should ALWAYS select the “Standard Ligatures" and “Contextual Alternates” buttons in your OpenType palette. For a better understanding of its unique features please download The Deliscript User Manual—available as a PDF download at the bottom of the Gallery section.
