HIGHWAY is an attempt to capture the charm of hand-done early to mid-century type, the kind of beautiful lettering that happens when a human hand tries to recreate something mechanical. Created during (and inspired by) a cross-country roadtrip, Highway may very well be the first typeface created in the back of a camper. Tons of alternate characters, ligatures, and OpenType sorcery make for endless custom lettering for logos, signage, and seminal prog-rock double albums. Roll on, Babes.
I worked on some illustrated type for The Manual inspired by old speedball/how-to lettering books. It's a manual for how to write The Manual. See what I did there? Get the shirt over at United Pixelworkers.
