Local Flavor Typography

010In strolling through my town, I found this typeface not just on the sign for “Bill’s Music,” but also on three other storefronts. For “Music City Maryland,” I feel that this typography is appropriate. Catonsville is a small town, but not a cute, quaint one; rather, the growing downtown has a working class feel. This typeface is simple and straightforward, and the curves add fun; free of flair and intricacies, but full of a lively spirit, this typeface embodies the local flavor of this town.

  1. I’ve been to Bill’s quite a few times! My brother is a great musician, and every time he visits from Colorado, we have to go to Bill’s. The typeface is friendly, and of course there is “Bill” himself on the sign!
