When it comes to creating a special mood with letters fancy fonts work wonders. You can find fancy letters on everything from billboards to shop windows, book covers to birthday cards. There are a variety of effects that can be created by playing around with the lines and flowing shapes of fonts. Be it by adding spirals to the letters, or small shapes like stars or eggs within the letters themselves, or simply by placing letters at different levels, many fantastic effects can be created. Fancy letters often get inspired by old fonts of the 18th century or earlier, which use floral shapes and lines for artistic beauty.
Loops in the capital letters are often used to turn a regular font into something artistic. When bold lines are used in the letters fine touches of shade can also make for an arty effect. The brush strokes of artists have an intricate edge and style that can inspire fonts. The mix of bold and fine lines that can be made with a brush looks really beautiful in fonts. A dense pattern with shades within letters can create effects like rough denim, and getting a faded look in some of the letters can also look really cool. Intricate and detailed the patterns of fancy letters can really add a touch of magic to any piece of communication.
