New! Easier searching & browsing with Type Style categories.
Over the past two years, the AscenderFonts catalog has grown significantly to include fonts from a variety of popular type designers and foundries. We are proud to introduce some new features that make it easier for you to browse, search, and find inspiration from our extensive collection.

Our new Type Style page now includes breakdowns by type style category. This feature makes it easy to find particular types of script, display, serif, sans serif, pro, and picture style fonts. We are still busy going through the AscenderFont catalog, but we wanted to share what we’ve done so far.

So this month we decided to showcase some wonderful fonts from some of these new type style categories. Enjoy!

 Tucker Script
Display Fonts - Children
Tucker Script from Ascender Fonts was designed by Steve Matteson. This informal handwriting script was named after a yellow Labrador Retriever. Steve even added a couple of extra characters to pay homage to the namesake - a bone, dog bowl and an image of Tucker himself! Tucker Script has a very youthful appearance and is great for projects that need a childlike personality.
