Robot Pimp is a wonderful new font from font
designer Ryan Donahue
Ryan is just a year out of school, working as a graphic designer at an award-winning ad agency in Boise, Idaho, with a passion for designing fonts!
... We selected “Drunk Robot” as our September back to school font because of its really friendly hand.
... Character shapes here are just a bit lop-sided, with playful chunks removed here and there. While it has a decided ‘post modern’ look, and would be ideal for technology applications, there’s a bit of “kid” in every character. So we feel it would also make an excellent font for designing publications that are targeted at children, or parents for their children. (Don’t tell them the name!)
|... Another thing we really liked about the font is
the way the characters work so nicely together. The nearly-square counter areas seem
to set up a rythmn in the body of type which is echoed by any negative space that
is interspersed into the block. You see, our example here illustrates that even non-aligned,
staggared type blends and holds together as a single gulp!
... By the way... there are also a lot of interesting and fun alternative characters in the font that you can utilize in your projects. The nice thing about having extra characters be part of the font is they will harmonize with the other typography on the page.
