    Talking about neon signs in modified Brush Script: The letterforms on the facade of this optical store on Frankfurter Allee, Berlin, are derived from the classic ATF face, too. Here they were embellished with a custom ‘A’.

    In their recent digital revision the designers of American Type Founders Collection expanded the script into 5 weights including a Light, but they didn’t think of adding a monolinear variation.

      Would be nice to see how brushscript additonally works by night :-)

      For me, one reason this works better than the Portland sign is that the neon is in a center line (not the outline), which reduces the blobby effect of the face. Brush Script really works better when it is solid color on whatever surface, and the outline isn’t emphasized.
