Font of the Week: Ginger Snap

Hello my friends! I am back with another font of the week. This font from Jukebox called Ginger Snap was a lot of fun to create!

   Inspired by the popular hand-lettering styles used in scrapbooking, Ginger Snap is a light hearted script font that is fun and carefree. Display fonts like this are always a joy to create because there is so much freedom to manipluate the letterforms.

   The OpenType features allowed me to add several different versions of each letter which in turn, gives the user great typographic possibilities. The font can be given a more hand drawn look which lends a casual flair to any design!

Ginger Snap is part of the Jukebox collection which is available from Veer and now from as well. It contains support for all Latin-based and Eastern European languages.

New Schmalfette CP Font from CounterPoint!

Hello fellow font lovers!

I am excited to announce that I am preparing the finishing touches on a new font from CounterPoint hat will be available soon at all my vendors.

Another collaboration with Washington DC based designer Rob King, "Schmalfette CP" is a faithful digital revival of the famous Schmalfette Grotesk, created in 1954 by Swiss type designer Walter Haettenschweiler.

   Although several current typefaces claim to be digital versions of Schmalfette Grotesk, they are actually only based on the design and have different elements and proportions. The new Schmalfette CP from CounterPoint is a pure recreation of the original.

The original face was an all caps font and was most famously used by Twen magazine in the 1950s and 1960s.

   I am currently putting the packages together to submit to my vendors, so the typeface should be available soon. I will be sure to make an announcement here, so please check back!

   I am excited about this as it is a great font and was a lot of fun to bring back to life!
