The Jonah Font! A collaboration with my son. I’m often experimenting with letters at home, wondering if they’ll work on a screen. But I was surprised when Jonah told me he was going to work on a font. His penmanship is better than mine was at 12 (he’s 8). So he went to his desk with a piece of paper and came back with a fun alphabet, with some basic punctuation and numerals. I didn’t realize how well it would work in various styles until I scanned his paper and started to experiment on the computer.
Sure, some things were backwards, but that’s pretty easy to fix in Illustrator. Aside from flipping glyphs, I didn’t modify his characters much beyond some simplification in complex paths and thin areas. Once I completed the translation of his original outlined version two other styles were just begging to be made.
That’s it! Three styles: solid, mix, outline. Above is everything we made, so no international support and minimal punctuation. The download includes each style as a ttf file and a webfont kit. All Uncombined sales go to Jonah’s savings account at our local credit union.
