Just to be different--I quite like the fictional Vulcan script, in traditional calligraphy:

Geeky, sure, but surprisingly lovely.

Everybody have their favourites. Mine would be the Mayan script. Although certain ones were assigned
to an alphabet, each character is essentially a pictogram like ancient Egyptian.

I study all writing systems as a serious scholar. I specialize in all hieroglyphic writing systems.

I like Roman lower-case because it's efficient and easy-to-write. I'm not saying that Western cultures are best, our writing system is though. Of course, decades ago I thought all sorts of more common "diversity-friendly" thoughts about Arabic and Chinese and Japanese and Hindi and so on.

But for other characteristics, Egyptian is my favorite. It's got everything : a standard coloration scheme, glyphs that look like things over a very long period of time. There's nothing like it. It also throws a curveball by almost totally ignoring vowels and being unpronouncable, without fluency in Coptic.

Wow, it's gorgeous!

I don't think I could possibly choose a favourite, but I adore cursive cyrillic. It's so
pretty, and also not too difficult to learn.

My favorite ones are, I guess, Latin, Cyrillic, Devanagari and Arabic,
all set in DIN typeface:
