BRICKLETTER was inspired by Jeff Levine’s interlocking all-brick font “Off the Wall.” I took the brick idea that and added letters based on Max Kaufmann’s classic font Balloon. Each letter fits with the next to create a brick wall emblazoned with bold graffiti. The brackets and underscore can be used to create square ends and bricked space. Parodied on Something Awful as “Bricks of Failure…What could make a font read better than putting a bunch of bricks behind it? Absolutely nothing! It’s perfect!” This font contains caps, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
BACKHAND BRUSH is my re-creation of a classic 19th-century style of hand lettering. Like some Victoriana and Art Nouveau fonts, it was revived in the psychedelic era. My font is completely redrawn from a guide to hand-lettering, not a font. I have regularized it somewhat (maintaining a constant 18-degree slant) but also tried to keep a slightly random brush feel. Includes upper and lowercase, numbers, punctuation, and international characters.
