Tuesday Type Treat: Prova (Hand-drawn Font)

Prova is the first typeface created by designer Gerren Lamson. The hand-drawn font is available for $5 on his site.

The word PROVA means “test” in Italian and “proof” in Portuguese. It was chosen to commemorate this release as the first of many typefaces I hope to design. PROVA started from tight sketches and evolved into a full, international character set. The primary intention was to produce friendly, condensed letter forms that contained the occasional charming quirk, but function as a hand-drawn workhorse display font that could compliment illustration and interactive work.
