Do you love your country as much as you love fonts? Are you a Comic Fanboy? A CFB with a soft spot in your heart for those spangled superheroes willing to fight for the American way of life? Do you joyously celebrate the 4th of July? Do you admire the Pledge of Allegiance, Old Glory, Lady Liberty, the Star-Spangled Banner? Do you hum the National Anthem on your drive home? Do you put country first?
It’s time for a script font with magical appeal. Think island. Think orient. Or for some, the magic is real. It’s voodoo! Voodoo Script! The font with 14,000 kerned pairs and over 45 alternate characters and ligatures! It’s the script like no other--with options like no other! If you love dinking around in the non-keyable range (and I know you do) then you'll be laying out your messages in fast order and perfect form with this face. Voodoo even comes with an “extras” set, the crown jewel of which are preset words, those prepositional layout-killers we all just wish would go away. You know the ones I'm talking about. It’s that word like “of” or “the” that shows up at the wrong time to play havoc with the real focus of your design. Seven of the worst offenders have been pre-assembled to perfectly complement your Voodoo layouts: The, the, and, from, for, of, to. You'll also find distance fractions, accent marks for foreign characters, and a few other symbols that had to be left out of Voodoo proper to make room for those hidden goodies that will have you salivating all over your character map. But then Voodoo does tend to work its magic that way.

OverKill Bloque was created in 1991 as a banner logo for a gamers fan newsletter, The OVERKILL Casualty Report. As letterforms were built for various headlines, a font took shape. Just for grins I fleshed out an uppercase and numbers and named it Ultra Bold. Much later, when Mike and I were working on our chiseled race pak, Ultra Bold convexed nicely and fit in with the modern sports look of the font pak. Mike is most at fault for the lowercase! No face should be without a lowercase! Since then, OverKill / Ultra-Bold has made its way onto the covers of two comic books and numerable vehicles and signs. In 2008 I decided to make it more useful for the desktop crowd. I brought back the OverKill name and called the first font in the family, OverKill Bloque.
“Have a nice day!” I can remember that motto and the smiley face from childhood. It was a friendly, optimistic little image that became an icon. These days it has been updated and is a collection of emoticons used by cultures world wide. The smiley face can now be friendly, sad, happy, angry, etc. This collection is our fun expression of the smiley face. We've got smileys for emotions, seasons, some holidays, and just about all of the emotions. There are smileys for just about every occasion. We also created a smiley tribute to classic movie monsters.
