Speed Bump

Speed BumpI, uh, don’t know quite what to say. I’d toiled so long over a particularly painstaking typeface project that I guess I needed a good, wild ride to shake out the head cramps, or something. Whatever grabbed me, it forced me to sit down and create another face as fast as I could, directly in my main font-development application. Took less than two hours to finish the regular character set. No way to explain it, but the exercise actually paid off—I think. And now that there was Speed Bump, there simply had to be a companion dingbat set. The OpenType release has additional ligatures, Central/Eastern European alphabets, and all 200-plus ornaments in a single font file. US$29.

KIND WORDS:

“Our 3rd and 4th graders are thrilled that their historical writing is going to look so authentic!
—S.E., Charlottesville VA

“I've never seen anyone digitize old quill-pen handwriting [like Schooner Script], warts and all. You've done a fine job.”

—C.C., Palo Alto CA

“I'm a collector of 19th century antiques and photographs, and like to make labels and scrapbooks using fonts that fit the period of my items. I've even tried to learn the penmanship myself using dip pens... your fonts will make it so much easier!”
—P.M., Palatine IL

Bonsai is very beautiful; the font's antiquity seems to conjure a sweet staleness of old newsprint, somehow.”
—A.T., Ontario, Canada
