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.
BEAD CHAIN and MARQUEE are a pair of fonts that are made up of dots. BEAD CHAIN suggests a string of pearls while MARQUEE offers your name in lights. Inspired by a book jacket from the 1920s or 30s, I’ve used the stately letterforms of Gill Sans as my guide, although most letters had to be reshaped to fit the beads. Version 1.5 includes an expanded character set, improved spacing and kerning.
