House Industries called on me to design lowercase and extended characters to complement their all-capitals Sign Painter Showcard typeface. The new-and-improved Showcard Stunt translates the warmth and spontaneity of hand lettering into digital form, drawing inspiration from the work of Peter Dombrezian, designer of 1950s powerhouse Dom Casual.

Available for retail licensing from House Industries.
