I name my fonts based on how they "feel" to me. This one gave me a very beachy, oceanside feeling, and kind of both a sunrise and sunset vibe. Thus the weird, scientifically impossible, yet descriptive name: "Morning Sunset"! It's a handwritten display typeface, with some of the quirks and bumps that come with handwriting, yet smooth enough for crafters and vinyl cutters.
This typeface includes a full set of stylistic alternates: the uppercase A-Z are larger and more dramatic than the standard set, while the alternates for lowercase a-z all have connecting tails, allowing you to mix and match the standard and alternate lowercase letters for a handwritten look.
Morning Sunset also contains a full set of punctuation, 15 double-letter ligatures, and over 200 accented characters for foreign language support (including English, French, Spanish, German, Polish, Romanian, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Danish, Esperanto, Czech, Dutch, Welsh, Filipino, Turkish, and more!)
Morning Sunset includes:
- Both OTF and TTF file formats
- Standard uppercase and lowercase alphabets
- Full stylistic alternate uppercase and lowercase alphabets (both coded into the regular file, and separated out into an alternate file)
- Standard numbers 0-9 and punctuation
- Over 200 accented characters for foreign language support
- 15 double-letter ligatures
- Fully PUA-encoded for Character Map / Glyphs panel access
The main file, Morning-Sunset.otf, contains OpenType features (stylistic alternates). In order to use these alternates, you need to install the OTF version of the font, and your software needs to be able to access OpenType features.
Some programs have OpenType feature access built in (Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Word, CorelDraw, QuarkXpress 7+, and more). Many other programs that support Unicode will allow you to import OpenType alternates by copying them from Character Map (PC) or Font Book (Mac) and pasting them into your program.
If your software isn't friendly to OpenType features, or you need to use the TTF versions, fear not! The alternate alphabet has been separated out into a second alternate font file, so you still have full access to the second set of letters. See the included PDF helpful hints guide for details!
