Gilly Script Description
Got the name for Gilly from the Bowie song Spiders from Mars. The lyric "Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly."
Gilly was handmade (on my iPad) it has a mix of inspiration from hand painted signage with a large dollop of American western. Its got big bold lines that have a somewhat retro look and feel.
It would be great for stationery, invitations and cards, logos, titles and slogans or anything where you want that handmade look.
If this font were a celebrity it would be more Kristen Wiig than Keira Knightley.
Gilly script comes with charming alternates, ligatures, and a few initial and terminal forms.
Using the power of contextual alternatives in your design application you can easily change each character. With contextual OpenType feature turned on, watch the letters change as you type.
Please note: You can't see the alternatives in action the preview window below. See https://vimeo.com/232148009
