About this font family
After months of sketching, drawing, tracing and kerning I am proud to present a new member of the dearJoe family: here’s dearJoe 5.
This one was created by writing all characters with a thick HB pencil and then tracing them very tightly, which resulted in a more clean and constructed look than the previous dearJoes and it also explains the font having rounded corners here and a pointy end there: a pencil’s point tends to vary its shape because it continuously wears down a bit when writing with it.

The font comes with a little curly brother to provide you with a complete alternative alphabet to play around with. If you want to create plain text, dearJoe 5 will do fine, but in case you would like -let’s say- a header above that text with a bit more eye-catching upper case or a bit variety in lower case, just exchange the dearJoe 5 character with the one that is in the alternatives font and you will be pleasantly surprised... a bit of manual kerning between the two might be needed though.
DearJoe 5 contains all the special signs, dearJoe 5 alternatives only contains characters..
