Munky font my latest slab serif typeface is out. Created in illustrator with my Wacom graphics tablet to get that handmade feeling.
I’ve only gone and designed another font. This little beast is called Whippin Piccadilly. It’s named after a song by Gomez. Love that band. Check them out, no seriously check them out.
You would think naming a font would be easy. Yea I did. Sometimes naming a font can be frustrating, you think about it too much and then it becomes an issue. Not with this one. It popped right into my head.
I designed the Mr Chumley font with a Sharpie pen that I use to label freezer bags. Not very, well rock n roll is it?
It just shows that you can get inspired by the most mundane things. Everything is going in this brain of mine regardless if I’m at a gig, doing the shopping or labeling your Chicken Tikka.
So I’ve been on overdrive in the run up to Christmas, going to try and get as many font projects finished off as I can. I’ve still got a few fonts in the pipeline, just need to finish them. Then I can put my feet up and enjoy the xmas spirit.
A new font, yea! Today I’m releasing my new creation Dear Prudence. I’m not going to waffle on about it here, I’m just going to let you see it for yourself.
It’s been a while since my last font release, so I’m really happy with the launch of Hitchcut typeface.
Inspiration came from the poster for the film vertigo. It was designed by Saul bass the American graphic designer.
I’ve always admired the work of Saul bass, his kinetic type movie sequences are legendary. His typographic and minimalist style was amazing — what a legacy he has left us.
