Zothique and Posada Fonts in Pixar’s <i>Coco</i>

Zothique and Posada Fonts in Pixar’s Coco

The latest release from Disney’s Pixar division is a charming little film about family and the Day of the Dead called Coco. The visuals of the film are great and the storyline is quite uplifting, but for us the best part of the film came with the ending credits which featured our Zothique and Posada fonts. These two fonts are …

Eric Sloane Fonts at Homestead Fair

Eric Sloane Fonts at Homestead Fair

This weekend I got to visit Homestead Fair and discovered that they have made impressive and appropriate use of our Eric Sloane Fonts. Homestead Fair fair was started by a group of Jesus-loving hippies from New York City who decided to move to Texas in 1969 and create their own version of paradise on earth, which basically means living a …

Scurlock Font at Blue Dragon Plumbing

We love it when we spot our fonts being used in logos and marketing, especially when the company is local, like Blue Dragon Plumbing which uses our Scurlock font in their logo. We haven’t had a chance to have any plumbing work done in the three years they’ve been in operation, but they are first on our list to call …

Asrafel in the Movies

Asrafel in the Movies

I was idly browsing through the movie offerings on Amazon when I discovered an odd movie from way back in 2008 called The Gamers: Dorkness Rising. It may be about the most amateurish in-jokish movie I’ve ever seen, aimed directly at gaming nerds.  Not trendy modern computer game nerds, but old style D&D nerds.  I counted myself among them for …

St. Nicholas Font Featured in <i>Krampus</i>

St. Nicholas Font Featured in Krampus

Our St. Nicholas font really gets around.  In 2011 it was on The Daily Show and in 2010 it was on Saturday Night Live. But by far the most exciting use we’ve seen of it to date is its use in the title of the upcoming holiday horror movie Krampus, which is opening on December 4th.  St. Nicholas is a …

Gloriana on H2Ocean Packaging

Gloriana on H2Ocean Packaging

My teenaged daughter got a piercing for her birthday and she absolutely insisted that she must have something called H2Ocean to keep the piercing clean while it heals. We trekked off to the local mall to buy some of this magic elixir at Hot Topic (at what I later learned was 70% over retail), because only it has the necessary …

Gloriana Font Used by Austin Band <i>The Gourds</i>

Gloriana Font Used by Austin Band The Gourds

I was in Amy’s Ice Cream with my kids when I noticed a very large man wearing a t-shirt for a local band called The Gourds, and much to my surprise I recognized my Gloriana font on the shirt.  I lacked the presence of mind to take a picture of the shirt on the spot, but when I got home …

Abaddon in Maleficent

At the very beginning of the summer Disney released Maleficent the first in a series of films retelling the Disney versions of classic fairytales from the point of view of the villain. Maleficent is a visually stunning film combining high end CGI animation with live actors and Angelina Jolie with unbelievably accentuated cheekbones as the title character. It is somewhat …

Folkard Font on Dublin Black Cherry Soda

I was shopping in my local HEB grocery store this weekend and found myself in the soft drink section, confronted by a wall of cool retro-looking bottles of all sorts of sodas from the Dublin Bottling Works, a company based in Dublin Texas which produces a full line of specialty soft drinks, apparently mostly for distribution through HEB. They’ve got …

Brian Lumley is best known for his series of Necroscope novels …

Flatstock 43 in Austin

It’s South by Southwest time in Austin and for me that means it’s time for my annual visit to the Flatstock poster show. As always, the show was great, but every year it seems harder to get to than the year before as SXSW spreads out over more and more of Austin with ever more ridiculous numbers of bearded hipsters …
