Script handwriting ugly sloppy individual personal handmade stylistic alternates picturesque painterly
The »Tube Script« is an individual handwriting with a slightly wet character.
In this case, the ”pen“ was a tube of black paint. It’s easy to see that you can’t really write »beautifully« with it.
Nevertheless, the Tube Script is a beautiful, personal handwriting whose clumsy origins are not at all obvious in small font sizes. But if it’s big enough, then all the peculiarities of the paint container misused as a writing implement become apparent. Sometimes the line is very thin and delicate, sometimes it’s just a thick blob meant to represent a letter, depending on how hard the tube was squeezed.
A few spills are inevitable. These coincidences of painterly writing are what make this font so appealing. This creates organic forms, random effects, breaks, streaks, where the writer normally determines the form.
As such, this font is a great match for anything organic, picturesque, handmade, personal, or even random, unpredictable, or just plain natural.
In Tube Script, hundreds of ligatures make the letters appear in a different form each time depending on it’s combination. And more than a hundred alternate characters can be selected using the corresponding OpenType features, thus enabling even more variety in the typeface. This creates the typically restless, extremely varied impression of a really individual script — almost as if it were really handwritten.
