About this font family
Eckhardt Signwork JNL was inspired by visual images collected by two great nostalgia sites: www.forgotten-ny.com and www.norelevance.com.
The vintage signage photographed and saved for posterity on both sites reflect an age when hand-crafted work was the rule, rather than the exception [as is today].
Although somewhat limited in scope, this font can best be used for retro or nostalgic embellishments in ads or design work. There’s also a generous amount of blank panels to insert your own copy for special projects. More…
As with previous typefaces in this series, the font is named in honor of the late Al Eckhardt, owner of Allied Signs in Miami, Florida - a talented sign man and Jeff Levine’s good friend for 18 years.
