DIPLOMA MONOGRAMS are a unique style of letters that looks like folded ribbons. With the simplicity of a bookmark and the formal elegance of an official seal, this set of 3 fonts lets you make distinctive custom monograms of 1-4 letters. The possibilities include White, Black, and Cameo, a striking mix of contrasts. And each font includes the letters with and without shading, your choice depending on the scale and medium of your project.
ALL NIGHT is a geometric sans serif with a twist: the characters are all bordered by a line of little dots giving them an eye-catching “glow.” ALL NIGHT was inspired by an example in a 1950s guide to hand lettering and a shop sign in Turkey.
WET INK is a playful font that looks like you spilled a shiny liquid and the droplets formed letters. There’s a solid version without highlights; layer it behind the first in a different color for more effects.
VINEYARD is a pairing of fonts with a rich, woody character. Featuring notes of bark and an earthy finish, Vineyard can be served at most any occasion. The Solid fonts can be used separately or, in a contrasting color, as a fill for the Regulars. And now there’s a third variety, Graft, a dynamic blend of outline and solid. Vineyard was inspired by two early 20th-century analog fonts from American Type Founders, Virile and Erratic Outline. I’ve married the two designs, expanding and refining them. At one time I offered my version of Virile; it has since been revised, and… continued
LABELOUS looks like embossed tape labels, a low-tech classic. But unlike other such fonts, Labelous is narrower and includes upper and lowercase, full punctuation, and international characters. There are two versions of the font, one with black letters and the other with black tape and white letters. For the look of continuous tape, just type an underscore for blank tape between letters.
JIMMY LEG is a serif font that mixes formality and casualness. The overall letterforms are solid and serious, but on closer look are abuzz with energy. For a more elegant version of this style, check out Poignant and Poignant Italic.
MONEY TREE is a bold and graceful font that mixes formality with forward motion. Inspired by “Currency,” an early 20th-century type by A. D. Farmer foundry, I’ve slightly modernized and expanded the letterforms, and created Outline and Hilite varieties.
PEACEFUL PROTEST is a bold, impactful font. The straight lines and strong verticals are reminiscent of runes, but were inspired by this poster designed by the Milwaukee-based artist Francisco Ramirez. Using quickly torn masking tape and assembled with urgency, his poster captured both the message and the moment, and has now been acquired by the Whitney Museum of American Art. So grateful he let me make this font! Use this font to say your own message loud and proud. It has LARGE and small caps. You can use all of one or mix and match for a more hand-lettered feel…. continued
DIVINITY ROSE MONOGRAMS is a set of 4 fonts that produce monograms in a delicate and graceful style studded with dainty roses. A choice of solid or open letters and an assortment of coordinated decorations allow even more flexibility in creating your own custom monograms. Inspired by the work of Ross F. George, circa 1935.
BUCKET is a bold and bouncy geometric sans serif, familiar with just enough flair to catch the eye. And then there’s a second font, BUCKET SPATTER, where the letters each have a strong dot texture on the right side, as if sprayed or spattered. The fonts can be used separately or layered together in contrasting colors. The spacing of the Spatter font can adjusted so the letters overlap and remain legible. These fonts were inspired by early 20-century showcard lettering in which ink spatter, shading on rough paper, and other techniques were used to add texture and dimension.
