Two of my projects is on shortlist of Vuoden Huiput 2015 (The Best of Finnish Advertising and Design competition). These successful projects are Paintlay type family and HKL Headline which is a custom typeface I designed together with Dynamo&Son for HKL (Helsinki City Transport).
I had pleasure to design a custom typeface for HKL (Helsinki City Transport). This font is based on old hand painted tram signage in Helsinki. I did some research of the methods how painters actually painted those letters. And then designed the typeface with some subtle modernization but preserving all those distinctive details and characteristics.
Here is a lettering I made for Lost Type Co-op. This is going to be printed on t-shirts and you can order those already here:
I am testing a simple typetesting system and typeshop. This option is only available for Roihu at the moment.
So now you can try and buy Roihu straight from my site. You can also download free Roihu Bold Demo and Roihu Bold Italic Demo to test use:
