|A typo is born!
The Boum-Boum typeface has been created
for a friend of mine who was designing record sleeves. He wanted
a clear, legible font that would at the same time evoke musik.
I did not want to go into corny guitar pi fonts
or things that would remind more or less directly musical notation.
Rather than this, I took the elemental drumstick and the most
functional style of typeface, in the line of the Bauhaus work.
For what purpose ?
Here is Boum-Boum, a very legible
font that could probably even succesfully be used for text, but
that remains unmistakable, and perfect for titles, headlines,
quotes. The tilted italics are also a trademark of
that font, that add more originality to this elegant typeface.
These typefaces are hinted and kerned, and suited
for any kind of printing work. They have been used by famous European
printers to set text, using typesetting equipment.
