Balham to Brooklyn

The inspiration Balham to Brooklyn was lots of things, from previous attempts at creating a script typeface to old American neon signs. It’s me absorbing things—popular culture. America and watching too much Fast N’ Loud on discovery channel.

This is my take on that cutesy, nostalgic slice of America. It’s Krispy Kreme sweet and more than a touch retro.

Usage

It's a monoline script font so each letter is fully-connected to the next to emulate hand drawn letterforms. This is done by using contextual alternatives an OpenType feature available in you design application.

It’s ideally suited for packaging, logo work, branding, occasions, invites, posters and anything creative.

I called it Balham to Brooklyn. I got the name from a Turin Breaks song, it seemed like the perfect fit. The two places are so contrasting, Balham, London to Brooklyn USA. Also my favourite drinking hole is in Balham.

And just in case you were wondering, Brooklyn is about 3458 miles from Balham.

Font Format

The font format is otf and it only has one weight (regular). It includes all standard glyphs with contextual alternatives.

The typeface includes support for Western, Central and South Eastern languages. It has upper/lowercase letters, numbers, punctuation, and symbols.

To get the real hand-drawn effect you must turn on contextual alternatives in your design application.

In total, it has 937 glyphs. I have even thrown in a selection of alternative uppercase letters.

Notes

The font preview window does not show contextual alternatives. Please check the screenshots for the proper version.

The font is not intended to be used in uppercase as it will look ugly. It's all about the sentence case.

For the best results in photoshop please set the anti-alias to smooth.
