TreefrogOnce upon a time, a co-worker of mine, Philip D. Cyr, would use a particularly fanciful inkpen-style script in display-lettering situations. I liked it a lot. “Phil,” I says, “why not do the whole alphabet, maybe a few little pictures, and I’ll make a font.” Well, one day he presented me with a stack of posterboard; he’d done some letters, all right—hundreds of them. Managed to boil ’em down into a typeface called Treefrog, a name that seems to match its organic jumble, its tall x-height, its left- and right-leaning stems, its thick and thin strokes. Just remember: you have Phil Cyr to thank for Treefrog. (Must be something in the water up in Millinocket, Maine.) Has a full character set and numerous ornamental doodles, including fish, chairs, rake and shovel, star, sun, and moon. The OpenType release adds Central/Eastern European alphabets, additional ligatures, and other features. US$39.

“There's a fair number of what I call 'scrawl' faces out there. [Treefrog] is one of the very few I really like.”
