Looking for an elegant way to create that hand drawn script look?
The set includes 9 brushes — each designed to work as a system to build a custom script logo or type treatment. Simply create each curve and apply the corresponding brush. Connect them together to create a cohesive and memorable script with an elegant, hand-drawn look.
