Gleb Guralny from Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine has released Traveler, a free western style typeface with wide and narrow characters, and lots of ligatures (automatically replaceable with open type features). The font is listed to be owned by "multiple owners" -- Guralny and Pixels Plus in Canada -- another free piece from the Russian graphics cartel encompassed in CreativeMarket, PixelsPlus and Pixels Surplus in Montreal.
      This package includes Three OTF font files, Three WOFF font files, Vector EPS files. Traveler looks a lot like Guralnyk's "Desperado" typeface which is also free

A fun, casual conncting script : PhotoWall

type, fonts, calligraphy samples

You saw "PhotoWall" script above. This is not it, but PhotoWall is included in the commercial version of this font. This is a "demo" font. (Unfortunately, the designer promoted this "free font" as PhotoWall, in a bait-n-switch scam!) We love the script however, so we included it here. The whole Family in four weights with lots of swashes, ligatures and alternates. PhotoWall is perfect for logotypes, posters, cards, menus, product packaging and other printables, as well as web applications. It is friendly, fresh and fun to work with.
      This font is from DearType -- the full version comes with a comprehensive package of complementary fonts and a bunch of frames, borders and other design elements that will help you get creative. (sort of flaky because the promo talks about the script, but the free demo is the sans serif shdow version that is very ordinary.)
