I made Higgs Boson Blues by carving by hand into linoleum blocks and then hand printed onto paper.
Its a big and bold display typeface, which kind of has its roots in traditional wood type.
Higgs Boson comes in two formats OpenType-SVG bitmap and regular vector font.
The OpenType-SVG font an extraordinary amount of texture and detail. It has a vintage kind of western style, it a weathered almost stamped like appearance.
It has all that charming grunge detail that only block printing by hand can achieve.
Also, the OpenType-SVG typeface is all set on a transparent layer, so that in Photoshop and Illustrator you can easily change its colour.
Higgs Boson Blues usage
The font is suitable for a wide variety of designs everything from t-shirts, letterheads, headlines and logos to retro packaging, book covers and beer labels.
If you looking to get that authentic letterpress look, Higgs Boson Blues might be a perfect choice.
Each lowercase and uppercase letter has 3 alternatives. Helpful to make your lettering seem different and random.
OpenType SVG, please note:
OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts are new. Support for them is limited but growing.
They only work in the latest versions of Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+, plus a few of other native OSX applications. They also work on the more modern versions of windows again only in Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+.
Windows users might not see your letters when you install the typeface. But it does work in the applications mentioned above.
Adobe Indesign does not fully support OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts.
Font Image backups
If your software is too old I've provided high-resolution images, so you can still manually compose inside photoshop or your app of choice.
