Back in 2008, bored out of my mind in a typography class in college (think laying out recipe cards for apple tarts, not designing typefaces), I thought of an idea for a font: what if the strokes, counters, and spaces between each letter were the exact same width? A lazy man’s blackletter in some ways.
That simple parameter made for an easy font to design – albeit a fairly useless one. So, the challenge became how many glyphs can I make? On the way to matching the Pro juggernauts (Minion Pro has 1234 glyphs), I discovered important life skills like scripting OpenType features, the difference between carons and breves, and the limit of my blind perseverance (I threw in the towel at 448 glyphs – would anyone die if it lacked Cyrillic small caps?).
Burnt-out and disillusioned with wasting so much time designing a fairly useless font, I let it sit in a pile of proverbial dust. Four solid years later, STRICT can be yours for free!
Make sure to read the EULA: free to use for personal and/or commercial work, don’t host on free font sites, play nice with others, etc. Standard issue jargon.

After 50,000 years in the business (slight exaggeration), KOMBOH is now on the Twitter. Or is it in the Twitter? We are the Twittererz?
Whatever it is, throw some Twitter love and/or banter our way: @komboh_inc

For us, that film is Groundhog Day. It leaves you in an existential crisis with more questions than syllables in Punxslkjalkjadfdelsdy Phil’s name and a strong desire to wear the same flannel scarf everyday for the rest of your life.
Grab a copy of our poster and let the never-ending head scratching begin!

We’re big fans of the Borg, so we made a magical guide to understanding the hive’s full range of emotions. Now you can easily spot the difference between a drone who is mourning a dead fish and one who is licking Doritos. You’re welcome.
The show is open until June 30th, so beam yourself up and over to Paris already.

Today, KOMBOH does for posters what Pizza Hut did for pizza. No, we’re not shoving wieners and spray cheese into every nook and cranny in sight, we’re letting you personalize the pan out of this piece of paper.
Feeling Hawaiian? Select “Sexier than Sax Man” and “Still Unemployed”. Or is Vegan more your style? Go for “Organically Greeny” and “Bland as a Potato”. Or is this loosely constructed pizza metaphor boring you to death? Grab a mouthful of “An Adult Diaper” instead.

A little illustration for a man’s 40th birthday invite. The printed piece had an iconic blue pill (that will remain nameless, as we trying to avoid anymore litigations this month) glued in place of the blue cuff link you see here. Needless to say, it was a
big large giant hit.
