Hello! I’ve been diligently hacking away at this typeface for a few months now and it is finally available for download! I’m happy to say I’ve had quite a few requests since my initial post on the subject and if it weren’t for all of you I don’t think I would have ever gotten around to finishing this, so to everyone who has the desire to use this typeface, thank you!

Super Cayden's Party
One person in particular contacted me about using the font for his son’s birthday card, I sent him the illustrator file in the early stages and look what he did! —–>

Anyway, this being my first functional font, I must say it’s been a pretty neat, although arduous, process. I encourage anyone, experts to fans, to improve on this typeface in the open source manner. Wouldn’t it be nice to see an improved version on some random free font site one day? Yes, it would.

I used Illustrator to create the outlines and FontLab Studio to adjust and export as an Open Type File.

There is no lowercase, typing lowercase and uppercase will result in the same letter forms. The lowercase “i” can be found by typing the capital “I.” There are no numbers, yet.

If your still reading, stop, and start downloading, using, sharing, commenting, improving, and whatever else is awesome to you… aaaaaand your still reading.

Our very own James Kislingbury travels to Adam Carolla’s hide out in Pasadena and interviews the hell out of him. A real interview with Adam Carolla, for reals, and it’s seriously worth reading so check it out.

Our super photographer Andrew Lee traveled the full distance for a short but generous 5 minute photo session. I grabbed the photo with the nicest composition for a cover, threw the text on there in Neutra, one of my favorite typefaces that I haven’t been able to use, and put together a simple, fun, ribbon design. My goal when working with photos is to get the text to read without covering up too much of the photo, this style of design worked well for this cover and I got to have some fun weaving the ribbon behind and in front of the Ace himself.
