Three years ago, I generated a few crumbs of a font as part of a custom poster design for the Humphrey Bogart film The Roaring Twenties on here. 60 rounds of revisions and expansions later, it's a real, live font available through MyFonts.com as of today! cheers.gif Attached File  Bunny.gif ( 518bytes ) Number of downloads: 0


Here it is from the original project:

Attached File  Rummy_1.jpg ( 76.77K ) Number of downloads: 0



And here's a look at the final product:

Attached File  Rummy_1.png ( 6.49K ) Number of downloads: 1


Attached File  Rummy_2.png ( 37.14K ) Number of downloads: 0


There are also a few more related showcase images on bunnydojo.com/rummy or myfonts.com/fonts/bunny-dojo/rummy.

This is my first time building a font, and HiRes is pretty much my only home for design online, so if any of you guys have any tips on sites for advertising fonts or the kind of things that get you interested in a font (ideas for sales images, etc.), I'd definitely appreciate your input.

Also, I tried to make the font usable internationally, so if any of my bilingual friends on here happen to notice an accented character that should be added, those kind of suggestions are very welcome and very helpful as well.

Thank you to Bazzah for letting me share and to my HiRes friends for the encouragement along the way! 8834.gif

Congrats on the font, BD! 8824.gif 8824.gif 8824.gif

Glad to see that all of the rounds of revisions paid off. MyFonts must have some strict quality standards if they're making your excellent work go through so many hoops!

Hopefully this is just the first of many more outstanding fonts from you! 8824.gif 8824.gif 8824.gif

Thanks, guys! I have no idea if it will sell a single copy, but it was exciting to see it on MyFonts alongside "real" fonts after having browsed the site so much over the years.

The original design was initiated from the lettering on whiskey crates in the film The Roaring Twenties, which takes place during prohibition. I wanted something fairly unique for Google purposes (and names like "Whiskey" were already taken anyway), so I almost settled on "Racketeer." But, when re-watching my favorite movie, one guy calls another a "rummy," and there's a card game I used to play with my grandparents and mother called "Rummy," so those connections were enough to win me over. 8834.gif

After nearly a year, the original font has sold about 4 copies so far. bandance.gif
It's not exactly the kind of rousing success that begs for a sequel, but I had some fun designing the posters for this one and wanted to share

Really really nice Tim! I find the way to gain more sales is to try and do more and then once you have a wide range and one becomes popular the others should then gain more sales 8834.gif

Great font though - hope you get more sales.

Creating fonts isn't an easy thing to do and takes a lot of time - £9.27 is very cheap for a font plus the money Tim generates from it it makes it worth his time and effort, it also could help go towards him possibly making more fonts in the future.
