Brush Hand New is a full font based on a copy of Flash Bold called Brush Hand marketed by WSI in the 1990s and more recently distributed through free font sites. Brush Hand was an anonymous redrawing of Flash which simplified, slightly lightened, smoothed out ragged edges, and improved the legibility of the original classic created by Edwin W. Shaar in 1939.
Flip is a bold outline shadow sans with a counterchange; an eye-catching display font for contemporary usage. Flip is a Rosewood for generations raised on grotesques; a simple modern zigzag replaces fancy Victorian leafiness. Flip is flash but not flashy. It’s decorative rather than pretty. It’s a celebration without pomp, festive but not flowery. Like Rosewood, Flip is a bicolor typeface that is provided as two complementary fonts – Flip Fill has matching spacing and kerning so can be used as a color underlay to Flip Regular.
Hapshash is an all capitals font inspired by the 1960s psychedelic posters of British designers Hapshash and the Coloured Coat (Michael English and Nigel Waymouth), in particular their 1968 poster for the First International Pop Festival in Rome.
Soft Sans is a modern sans serif family of fonts, businesslike and classic grotesque in origin, but made friendlier and less austere by the addition of rounded outer corners. Soft Sans is designed for clarity and legibility. The fonts have a healthily large x-height, handwritten forms of a and g, and distinct characters such as a barred uppercase i and a curved foot on the lowercase L.
Credit Card is an ALL CAPITALS font for simulating bank cards (and to suggest a context of banking, finance, membership or security). The number keys produce the bigger, squarer digits of the 16 figure card number. There is no lowercase in this font. Instead, the small numerals used for validity dates fill the lowercase letter keys, 1 > 9 being at a > i.
An all capitals family based on the hand lettering of English artist, Frank Bellamy, most famous for his comic art for Eagle and TV21, and his Dr Who illustrations for Radio Times. The uppercase characters are the wider and heavier of the scans, and the lowercase are narrower and lighter letters. The Regular, Bold, Italic and Bold Italic are all supplied.
