Font of the week — Boris Black Bloxx

I love this fat chubby font! I don’t know if it’s the warm pleasing personality it has or the fact that it looks like and reminds me of myself but on a professional note it just happens to be designed very well.

Although it’s not always appropriate to use due it’s size, Boris Black Bloxx can turn any piece into a friendlier, universal and welcoming design. Its great usability lies in its simplicity as a type design and in its difference of being a bit of large font making it a good choice for headlines or logos.

I find it perfect for when you need a friendly, simple yet soothing tone of voice with an obvious big presence. Like a big friendly giant.

Boris Black Bloxx is a classic typeface for me and what I think really sets it apart from other fat faces are the small rounded edges on each element of construction.

Heres how we used it for a project a few years back
