Inspired by Font Designer Theo Ballmer, as represented within the small type along the top half of this poster:
Although rudimentary, basic, and not necessarily new, this was my first font creation using Illustrator and FontLab. I made it a requirement to ignore other's typographic work, and fabricate the difficult areas of this font without bias. Since Kimballmer's debut in 2004, I have noticed an increase in fonts of similar styles on MyFonts, including an exact replica of the font within the poster represented above.
This blind approach allowed a unique solution. Raster-Bold is the closest representation, but notice the subtle differences within the descenders, ascenders and stems of the lowercase type. I believe my font is superior in rendering a more solid appearance, but concede that Raster-Bold's ability to successfully market their fonts is far superior than mine.
