Digitizing comic lettering started as a favour for a friend. When his first graphic novel was getting published abroad, he didn’t want it to be set in Comic Sans.
With the second project OpenType technology came into game. Alternate versions of each letter that randomly changes let the text look more lively and closer to the usually handmade lettering. This next one was done in collaboration with Hendrik Möller.
These custom work was done for publisher Reprodukt and Drawn & Quarterly. Usually there are at least two versions of each letter that alternate.
The following work was done for the publisher Ventil Verlag. It containes 2 fonts for the comic book Bohnenwelt by Larry Marder.
