A Font for Good.


In April of 2020, early in the Pandemic, it began to settle in just how serious COVID-19 was and is. Stuck at home, I began to search for a small way I could do something encouraging or helpful for the community around me.
A quirky piece of long-overlooked, handpainted type that I had recently found for my instagram account@baltimoretype sparked an old idea: take this great type-find from my city and give it back to my city as a font! With 10 of the most funky and cheerful letters I've found to date, they seemed perfect for the moment. I vectorized the existing letters and allowed their letterforms to guide my decisions for the remaining letters, numbers, and punctuation. Then I posted worthy local causes people could give to in lieu of payment. My hope is this will be the first of many Baltimore Type fonts.
