Nickelodeon font from Nick Curtis

Nickelodeon font from Nick Curtis.

For a real storybook look, and a lively voice, NICKELODEON from Nick Curtis is sure to brighten and lighten your next theme piece. The open lower case characters also make this a good font for text use -- while not smaller than about 10 point -- but unfortunately there's only one weight. You'll need Photoshop or similar to 'thicken' it for bold.

Nick is a member of the Internet Type Designers Association and has designed dozens of great fonts of all kinds -- from shareware to commercial fonts available from the leading foundries.
We used Nickelodeon as our "Jackolantern" art header for the October issue -- and I've included a full font sample here for you as well.

Nick says:

Nickelodeon is my very first font design, inspired by the title cards in silent movies. I found my original sketches in a notebook Iíve had for years.

You can download these fonts for both Macintosh and Windows from links posted in the Publishers' Warehouse Loading Dock.

Also featured this month is Nick's
