Kewl is the result of being caught in the afterimage of one design project while conceptualizing another one. Just before finishing the final tests on Mrs Blackfort, the first of what became a long series of Charles Bluemlein fonts, some of the letters began morphing differently in my mind. The idea was to go on the heavier and more playful side, but with a South American sign letterer’s twist, rather than just good handwriting. I did some sketching, took some notes, then got busy with other projects. Some of that stuff eventually seeped into Candy Script and, to a lesser extent, the Whomp font. But it was only a matter of time before I got back to the original concept and finished it.
Kewl is ideal for food packaging, book and music covers, magazines, and window splashes. Illustrations by Catriel Martinez.
In many locations across South Africa, you can meet names, headings and signs written with a really characteristic and unique font.
Inspired by this particular casual font, spiced with some African “Ayoba”,( A South African made-up word meaning “cool/coolness”), I decided to make this new font available for absolute free download exclusively from the fontfabric website.The name of the font is SAF. I am not the author of the original font – but simply vectorized a number of letters from the official WC logo and build the rest of them. Enjoy!
