Meritocracy Script Font
Meritocracy is a full-featured handwritten font with tons of alternate characters and OpenType features. My goal with this font was to make you a typeface that will look as much like hand lettering as possible. Using the built-in OpenType pseudo-random contextual alternates and over 300 individually drawn ligatures, you can infuse your typography with personality and variety.
You won't be able to preview ligatures or other OpenType features. If you have questions about specific glyphs that cannot be previewed here, please ask.
Meritocracy: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Meritocracy includes the following OpenType features:
- character variants
- contextual alternates ** Special Meritocracy-specific Note: If you are using OpenType-capable software like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, or CorelDraw and you have contextual alternates turned on, you can see the letters randomize themselves as you type, mixing from the default character set and stylistic set 01. (You can always turn on contextual alternates after you have already typed your passage and it will randomize all at once, or you can choose to turn off contextual alternates and substitute specific glyphs yourself - I find that if I'm typing a word or two, I prefer to control the individual glyphs myself; if I'm typing a paragraph, I like to use the built-in randomness of the contextual alternates feature). See a little glimpse of this feature in action right here Note that this pseudo-randomization (aka contextual alternate feature) is ON by default in Apple's Pages app and OFF by default in Microsoft Word, but it can be turned on.
- standard and discretionary ligatures
- localized forms (multi-language and multi-currency support)
- ordinals and superscripts
- stylistic alternates
- stylistic sets
The OpenType features can be very easily accessed by using OpenType-savvy programs (like most by Adobe, Corel, and Affinity).
Some (but not all) of these awesome features can be accessed in programs like Microsoft Word, but you'll need to get comfortable with the advanced tab of Word's font menu. If you need help with this, find it here.
You’ll find the best OpenType support in programs like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop as well as apps from Corel and Affinity. Apps like Sketch 3, Quark XPress 7+, Microsoft Word and Apple Pages have some support. However, please note that cutting software (like Silhouette Studio, Cricut Design Space, SCAL, and others) DO NOT offer OpenType support.
If you’ve turned on advanced font features in software like Word and still can’t access the character you want to access, or if you are hoping to use these OpenType features with a vinyl cutter or other similar machines, we can help with that.
Support for English, Western European, and Eastern European Languages.
Includes support for US, Canadian, and Australian native languages and Mexican native languages EXCEPT Nahuatl.
If you need to know if this font supports a specific language, just ask.
