Valdemar Appearing on New Chadbourn Novels

There’s nothing better for a font foundry than when one of your fonts gets picked up as the signature font for a brand or a product or a franchise. Sadly sometimes those big customers are fickle. Case in point being our Windlass font which got a nice boost from being used on the cover of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books …

Abaddon in War of the Fallen

I run into our fonts in the strangest places, but it was an unexpected surprise the other day when I was playing SongPop on my iPhone with my daughters and I got a pop-up ad for a iPhone game called War of the Fallen with the title done in our Abaddon font.  Abaddon is hideously overexposed, but nonetheless it’s nice …

Windlass Font Takes to the Road

I stopped into our local barbeque parlor for dinner this evening, and parked out front I found a stylishly decorated Mini Cooper wrapped with art promoting DragonsLair, Austin’s preeminent comic book and game emporium. Even better, the store logo featured on the car (one of two in a matched set) features our Windlass Font. Because of the popularity of pirate …

Numi Tea Featuring Rackham Font

We often feature products which use our fonts in their packaging or content, but most of the time those are printed products like books and games. One very different example of our fonts in use which we found recently was in the packaging of Numi brand teas, which have been using our Rackham font as their logo font for about …

Abaddon – Bullet for My Valentine Logo Font

This may take on something of the character of a true confession when I have to start by admitting that I spent way too much time this afternoon at the local mall with my 10-year-old daughter shopping for trendy merchandise at Hot Topic. While she looked at Adventure Time and Dr. Who items, my eye was caught by our Abaddon …

Captain Kidd Font in The Last Battle

I was walking through the local comic store today when my eye was caught by a comic with a cover of muscular Romans fighting in a huge battle on a comic called The Last Battle. I’m a sucker for anything historical involving Rome, a theme not explored enough in the graphic genre, but what held my eye even more was …

Interlude Font on Lucini Pasta Sauce Labels

While wandering through the gourmet section of the local grocery store I encountered a very high end brand of pasta sauce made by Lucini Italia which uses our Interlude font for the product names on the labels of many of their products. A pint jar of sauce runs about $10 from various online retailers and they have nine different flavors …

Gehenna Font in Terran Games “Life Spinner”

Our fonts show up in some interesting places and unusual media. One of the coolest examples of this is the use of the Gehenna font in Terran Games’ pewter “Life Spinner.” The Life Spinner is a tool for card and roleplaying gamers to keep track of the life points or energy or other values in a game. It’s a high quality …

And I Hesitate to Mention…

While trapped in a hospital recovery room with a very limited selection of cable channels and at the mercy of the occupant’s remote control, I stumbled on one of our fonts in use in a context I hesitate to even mention. It turns out that our Goodfellow font is the title font in the British television monstrosity “My Big Fat …

Goodfellow Font in Django Unchained

I notice from our keyword tracking that we are getting a lot of hits from people looking for fonts from the movie Django Unchained. Not surprising give the striking retro-graphics which are common in Tarantino films. I suspect that most of them are looking for the font used in the titles or on the poster and I’m afraid that right …

In its latest incarnation as a multiplayer roleplaying game App for tablets and smartphones it has gone through a look and feel upgrade, and part of that upgrade is new title graphics which (like so many other fantasy themed games) feature our Folkard Font prominently. …

Hesperides at True Blue Tattoo

One of the trendy local tattoo parlors here in Austin is True Blue Tattoo. They have a large staff of tattoo artists who do some very nice body art, including several who specialize in cool designs with calavera themes. But what I found most exciting on a recent visit to their website was their decision to feature some of our …
