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.
