BANQ is big bold italic capitals. With the feel of Gilded Age banknotes and certificates, BANQ announces itself with big ball terminals and graceful swashes. The full set of 8 fonts includes solid and shaded, three-dimensional and shadowed versions.

BANQ was inspired by two fonts: Bob Gill’s hand-lettered Cheque as seen in “New Alphabets A to Z” by Herbert Spencer & Colin Forbes from 1973 and another, more mechanical font also called Cheque from Dan X. Solo’s collection. My fonts are completely reimagined and redrawn, harkening back to the letterpress examples that no doubt informed both Cheques.

Thanks to Jeff Levine for helping me get this one over the finish line!
