A great many years ago when working in game publishing I had a real fascination with doing titles in a strong, super-bold font called Bolt Bold. The truth is I rather overused it. In doing some research I find it on more than a dozen different game books I wrote in the early 80s, all quite collectable and out of print today. Back in those days we did the titles using rub-on lettering from Letraset. Although I used it a lot, there were always some things about Bolt Bold which I was dissatisfied with. I actually wished it were a little bolder and I never much liked the lowercase character set or the peculiar dissonance between the rounded exterior corners and square interior corners. You can see an example of Bolt Bold as I used in one of the Ysgarth roleplaying game books in 1982 to the left. I recently had a need for a similar font for a poster project. I wanted to do it right and certainly didn't have any 1980s era rub-on lettering available, so I decided to reimagine Bolt Bold as I would create it from scratch with 30 years of additional font design experience. The new font I developed is called BigBlok and you can see it sampled above and to the right. It has the same general look as Bolt Bold, but the weighting is more aesthetically pleasing, it's a bit bolder and the corners are more consistent. Instead of a lowercase character set it features centered smallcaps. It's also a fixed-width or monospaced font. You can download and try the demo version of BigBlok in TrueType format for Mac or PC. It includes a mix of characters from the different variants of the font. You can also order the full version online for immediate download: BUY IT NOW.
