About Baksheesh Font Family

The Baksheesh family comes in three weights with accompanying italics and small caps. The catalyst for the development of the typeface came from the desire to create a contemporary family of constructed letterforms built upon a flexible system. The aesthetic of the font is influenced by the characters drawn by Wim Crouwel in 1976 for Olivetti’s typewriter font that could support varying character widths, hence Baksheesh’s faux-monospace appearance. Each of the characters has been designed according to an intricate grid, helping to rationalise the letterforms into a system that can be translated across the various styles. The flexibility of the grid also allows for optical adjustments to be made, for example stroke thinning at junctions and baseline/x-height overshoot for enhanced definition throughout. Baksheesh is suitable for setting small amounts of text as a distinguishable and legible headline font.

About HamburgerFonts

HamburgerFonts is a small type foundry producing original and contemporary fonts for Mac and PC. The foundry name is a reference to the anglicized version of the word ‘Hamburgefons’, popularized by type specimen books in the 1970s, and used as a string of characters to determine the look and feel of a desired font. HamburgerFonts is run by typographer and graphic designer Stuart Brown who has been designing digital typefaces and letterforms since the late nineties. Stuart develops fonts commercially, alongside digital lettering and custom typography through the HamburgerFonts foundry.
