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.
