Ultra heavy slab serif uppercase only face, subtly celebrating the 4x1 diagonals of fontstruct 2.0... I hope some people will find more stylish uses for this than on college shirts/jumpers. It actually wasn't intended to have that standard college slab serif look, and I desperately believe that there's still a nuance of difference, but that might be an illusion.

I btw just copied the uppercase letters on lowercase slots to make it more convenient. So don't be too impressed by the character count.;)

What an awful sample... I'll do a better one soon!
Comment by Tobias Sommer (shasta) 13th may 2010
Man, you guys are killin' it with these new designs. Perfect name for this one Shasta - hits home like a ton of bricks. I think Ford or Chevy Trucks just found their new font for their 2010 campaign ;-)

Love this one. Heavy duty with enough style to not be boring.
Comment by johndilworth 13th may 2010
Now we’re talkin’! THIS is a slab serif. Meaty, muscly, well-proportioned. I even like the quirky serifs on the V an W. Excellent exploitation of 2.0
Comment by fugitiveglue 13th may 2010
Perfect in every way.

Blam! Boom! Bow!

Awesome shasta.

@ Shasta: Dear FS master: You have come true with this font an idea where I was working before it and now I give up gladly. I really like your fonts, even I think you and I are thinking about typography in a way very similar. Thank you for your dedication to the strange world of the glyphs.

This is great. Lots of fun and interesting details.
Comment by Rob Meek (meek) 13th may 2010
If someone thought it was easy to make a font like Punchline, he/she should think again. It looks well balanced, easy on the eyes, almost flawless. The full characters set, and a snazzy demo pic make this work very accomplished. 10/10

Comment by kix 14th may 2010
Thanks everyone, really appreciate the feedback, and I'm glad you like it! I must admit it has started to grow on me too as the fontstructing progressed... Probably one of my most useful and usable fonts, and that's mainly thanks to the steeper diagonals made possible with FS 2.0. In that respect the composite brick feature has made a huge step towards more professional designs possible. I don't think I would have made many things much different if i had done this in a free bezier curve software. (Maybe the Y, but that's about it.) Which is pretty cool if you think about it!

So cheers to Rob and the FontStruct staff for pushing this amazing piece of software further and further! At least half of the praise here belongs to you...
Comment by Tobias Sommer (shasta) 15th may 2010
Unbelievably great! This is just a true font. I'm amazed by the details.
Comment by gspace 15th may 2010

I love your diatrics there thick and well design.
Look very PRO Bravo! a 10

@elmoyenique: I don not agree with you, YOU SHOULD take back your Idea , look the overall PUNCHLINE and bring your concept somewhere else... ;)
you've already show us your great imagination, I belive in you ;)

Comment by Michel Troy ~UrbanPixel~ (Upixel) 16th may 2010
Uh, yep, almost forgot to answer to that...
@elmoyenique: I totally agree with Upixel: Don't give up on your design! I'd love to see it... One shouldn't give up something just because someone else did something similar. Most of us wouldn't even have started fontstructing if we'd had this attitude. And in the end, variety is the spice of life. ;)

And gspace and Upixel: Thanks for your comments, glad you like it!

Comment by afrojet 18th may 2010
Awesome, thanks a lot afrojet!

Here's a little thank you for all the positive feedback... Though: "little" might not be the appropriate word for this fella.
Comment by Tobias Sommer (shasta) 18th may 2010
If you didn't tell anyone, no one would ever suspect this is a modular font. Superb craftsmanship.
Comment by thalamic 19th may 2010
wow great work and marvelous sample ! Félécitations !
Comment by zen_killa 20th may 2010
congratulations !!
Comment by zen_killa 25th may 2010
Thanks for the link, zen_killa... I had to ask them to use a slightly modified sample though. The way I posted it here it looked like a pig among pearls in that collection.:)

And thanks for the comment, thalamic! Not seeing the modular base of the font is probably one of the biggest compliments you can give me for this font... :)
Comment by Tobias Sommer (shasta) 30th may 2010
Your sample is crazy good (as always)...very nice.
Comment by Stelios Constantinides (sconstantinides) 31st may 2010
What a nice font! I downloaded it! I have a font called wacky. yes if you see it I know I have bad handwriting.
Comment by Matthewrulz 2nd june 2010
Just... wow awesome :) just downloaded it.
Comment by jessica.l 3rd june 2010
Very nice!

Only thing, I have to manually kern LT and FJ all the time. They are not close enough. :-)

Otherwise great stuff.
