NATIONAL ARCHIVE was inspired by the familiar look of the Declaration of independence. Every school child learns that it was written by Thomas Jefferson, who was actually only one of several who composed the document that began the United States of America.
NATIONAL DEBT is the all-new, 2-font version of my “Savings Bond” font, first released in 1998. It was originally created for a 1940s-style event when I couldn’t find the font I imagined. (Later I discovered the existing font I’d wanted is called Futura Display, Function Display, Gumshoe, etc.) But my version was independently created and now has a distinctive highlighted companion font.
NEUROTOXIN was inspired by the Xerox Corporation’s former X logo, designed in 1994 by Landor Associates. Each letter is modified to appear to be forming from, or dissipating into, pixels, suggesting a transition from digital to analog and back. The basic letterforms are patterned after a bold Didone-type font. Serve with a nice Bodoni or even Times Roman.
NEW ENGLAND was inspired by the handlettered titles of the film The Devil and Daniel Webster(1941). I fell in love with this handsome script; it’s not too fancy, too stylized, or too contrasty, problems I find with too many script fonts
