New font! ‘blackHand’

Finally the time has come to publish our new ‘BlackHand’ font. It is a bold and upright handwritten font featuring 150 ligatures, which make for a credible handwritten look and feel. The ligatures will appear quasi random without the user having to search for the right alternate character in a list of glyphs.
As you will notice, the font does well in both headers (it even has an ‘instant logo’ quality) and in plain text.
The font find it’s origin in handwritten notes which were done without paying attention to aesthetics. The regular characters and the ligatures were handpicked to form an organic and natural, very readable result.
The original writing was done with an Edding© 1340 brushpen, giving the font frivolous thick/ thin strokes. We hope you enjoy using the font as much as we did creating it. You can check it out, give it a test run and even buy your own copy here: blackHand
