Barrowboy Font Information

font family from Studio K, added in 2012


Barrowboy was inspired by the handwritten sales tickets that are still to be found on market stalls and fruit barrows, and are as familiar as the street cries that accompany them. The signage is mostly confined to numerals, so translating it into a font is pretty much a work of imagination, but I think I've captured something of the spirit of the original with its curlicues and finials. Barrowboy has a naive, down-to-earth charm that is well suited to childrens books, games and toys - as some of the graphics here illustrate.
