Stapler WIP by TheRyanFord Stapler WIP by TheRyanFord
Stapler is a little font I began putting together this past week. It is not finished; this is a Work In Progress.

While working on a logo concept, I drew out some custom letterforms. We didn't go with the logo concept, so I took the letterforms and am expanding them into a font.

As you can see, Stapler is based upon the digital figures found in alarm clocks & watches, as well as from staples. All of its letterforms are similar in size, form, and dimension, and are all geometric in shape. However, there is a slight curvature to every line except for mid-lines (which are all perfectly straight). There is also a bit of inspiration from the type used in Russian Konstruktivism...although Stapler is significantly lighter in weight.

Anyway, this is sort of a side project which I'm developing a bit. Plan on light, regular, bold, and black weights for this. But, don't plan on massively expanded character sets. It's just a little display font, after all.

Is there some way to download a trial version of it, like you can with Fonce Sans Pro? It looks very cool. :nod:

I don't think I'm going to sell Stapler. So when I put it up it'll probably just be free.

I like the rounding, it gives it a slightly more welcoming feel.

Has this been released yet? Or have you scrapped it?
