What’s the difference?
Wondering what the difference is between modern calligraphy fonts and traditional calligraphy fonts? You aren’t alone! Unfortunately, the definition can be a little wishy-washy. Here it goes….
Traditional calligraphy (ex. Copperplate) has rules. Traditional calligraphy has very specific guides for replicating fonts such as how your strokes should be. In other words, there isn’t a lot of room for your own creativity.
Modern calligraphy fonts, on the other hand, allow you to be more expressive. There are a lot of different ways to create each letter in the modern calligraphy alphabet, and no one is going to call you out if your stroke on a certain letter isn’t 100% precise.
In other words, modern calligraphy is a little more fun whereas traditional calligraphy is a little more formal.
