Our friend at Armchair Media, Aaron Byrd, has been working on his new typeface, Schoolblock®. It’s still in the works but here’s a lil taste of what he’s got cooking. As some of you might know, the design of a typeface takes awhile and it’s not something you rush. It’s like designing 26 logos and that’s not including the special characters. Schoolblock® will be available in eps format, meaning you will have to hand kern it yourself. No optical kerning for you non-designers.
It’s good to see great design coming out of Atlanta. I will post a download link for your consumption once it’s available.

ATTN: I forgot to mention before that if you add Schoolblock® as a contact on Flickr, then you might just get your name designed by Aaron himself. Didn’t realize my name was so long.
