About this font family

Porkshop is a font of retro vintage flavor with a hefty dose of immigrant-influenced naive typography. It’s fundamentally inspired by an old-but-still-prominent “Pork Shop” sign in Manhattan. I like to think that this font was made by a signmaker’s apprentice who didn't yet have a grasp on the subtleties of elegant letterforms, but put his gusto into perfectly sharp serifs. While pointy little serifs are cool, the real shine of this font comes from the imaginative combination of uppercase and lowercase shapes. This unique mixture in the lowercase reminds me of an indeterminate European accent in the big city. Big and strong and easy to understand. Best rendered in 3-foot tall metal type, Porkshop works well in print and on screens, too. The Bolds and Italics are brand new in 2011.
