Recently, while going through my old art files, I came across some original hand lettered titles I had drawn for a brochure for a native plant habitat garden. I scanned them in and lettered all of the additional letters to make the entire alphabet.
When showing the first stage of this font to friends and family, I received several interesting and a few funny remarks on it. Many believe that GrindelGrove looks eerie, spooky, scary and well suited for a story of a vampire or Halloween. Another friend said, “Aaarrgh Matey – it has a wee bit of a pirate look”. Others commented that it reminded them of elves, fairies, dragons and demons, and finally – some said it had an organic and natural look and feel.
