Mister Loopy was my first venture into designing a fully working font. Rather than design something simple for my first font, I chose to make it really rather complicated with lots of curves and varying line widths!
The font comes in three parts - Regular, Loops and Fill. Using the layers feature in applications such as Illustrator and InDesign, the three parts can be stacked up to create some interesting results. In the first example Mister Loopy Regular is placed on the top layer, Loops in the middle and Fill on the bottom.

Spud AF lets you relive those fun-filled childhood days of potato printing but without the mess.
It was important to me that the font was as authentic as it could be. I spent several hours over the course of a few days cutting each letter, number and punctuation mark from real potatoes.
Once cut, the potatoes were covered in block printing ink and pressed onto scrap paper. The results were scanned into the computer to be developed into Spud AF. This process gave the font the flaws and imperfections which makes this style of printing so charming.
In keeping with the potato theme, Spud AF comes in two flavours - the rough and coarse Tatty and the neat and tidy Crisp.

Scribbles AF is actually based on my own handwriting. Not my everyday messy scrawl but my very 'bestest', neatest handwriting. The sort of handwriting I used to use for 'thank you' letters.
Each letter, number and punctuation mark was drawn, then drawn and drawn again. The good-looking ones got through my quality check and were scanned into the computer. These scans were then traced in Adobe Illustrator using my own custom brushes. The artwork was then imported into FontLab Studio where the font was created.
Scribbles AF comes in four main weights - Biro, Felt Tip, Marker and the recently designed Chunky. The soft, rounded edges of each glyph give the font a very relaxed and friendly appearance.
A quirky fifth style, Scribbles AF Ink, completes the family.

Peepz AF is a 'dingbat' style font and features 100 different faces. Each letter or number on the keyboard corresponds to a different face - I've even included my own mug in there (No.4, as you're asking). A guide to what key reveals what face is shown below.
It was designed to raise much needed money for Keech Hospice Care, a UK charity that runs two hospice services - one for adults and one for children. Profits from the sale of Peepz AF will be donated to Keech.
Their aim is to help patients enjoy the highest quality of life, while providing vital support for their family and friends throughout their loved one’s illness and in their bereavement. All of the charity’s services are offered free of charge, every single day of the year. This is all made possible because of the generous support of members of the public.
