A typeface inspired by American typefaces from the 1800s and the Art Deco-styled coffee shop I visit often in Des Moines, Iowa.
Combining a slab-serif, expanded typeface with ornate detailing brought challenging consideration to the legibility of the font. It’s used best for short, bold messages or an energetic initial cap.
Inspired by formal wear and black letter
Bombshell is a fun font inspired by classic Broadway, Old Hollywood, Art Deco, and Vaudeville. A classic look perfect for show posters and decor.
My new typeface 'Coup de ruban' represents the beauty of human movement through interpretive dance. I decided to name my elegant font 'ribbon stroke', but in French, as French is seen as a beautiful language. The thin, curved flourishes follow the movements of the dancer Megan Batoon's hands and feet when dancing to her own choreography. The thick strokes represent ballerina ribbon which ground the flourishes to create a bold, yet elegant display font. -Sam
