FingerSpeller BF™by Bomparte's Fonts
About FingerSpeller BF Font Family
Many years ago I studied American Sign Language in an effort to better communicate with some friends of mine within the deaf community.
I found ASL to be a beautifully expressive language from a vibrant and active culture.
Out of that attempt came this stylized depiction of the manual alphabet used in finger-spelling. Until recently it had only existed in analog form, born of pen and ink on paper.
So now I'm glad to say it’s turned digital.
Typing a period (.) will reveal the sign for “I Love You” (a combination of the letters I, L and Y), which fits nicely within the shape of a heart. Holding down the shift key while again typing period (greater symbol) will reveal the heart in its filled-in form, which can serve as an underlay. Use these in an application that supports layering in order to create different color combinations.
There’s a stylistic alternate letter “S” and an “OO” ligature which can be accessed in OpenType-savvy apps.

About Bomparte's Fonts
Bomparte’s Fonts, is a modest type foundry that was launched in 2006 by type designer John Bomparte, at the urging and encouragement of his friend and colleague Bob Alonso (BA Graphics). John’s love and passion for letters began while in art college, and in the middle of studies in typography. His eyes were suddenly awakened to the rich diversity of various lettering styles. He would sometimes stare for hours on end, at the different typestyles shown in such dry-transfer lettering catalogs as Letraset® and Zipatone®. To John, this was “eye candy”! It wasn’t long after that he discovered he’d been blessed with the ability to remember and identify the many typefaces to be found everywhere, from supermarket aisles to bookstore shelves. Later on, John’s experience in type design blossomed at the legendary Photo-Lettering, Inc. where he was assistant to renowned type designer, Ed Benguiat. Working in such an environment also offered him the unique opportunity to be surrounded by such other great type designers as Tony Stan, Vic Caruso, Vincent Pacella. However, with the emergence of the new computer technologies, the once photogenic letter inevitably had to go digital. So John embraced this new reality, as much of what used to be done laboriously by hand, could now be done in a fraction of the time. Bomparte’s Fonts endeavors continually to offer an eclectic array of high-quality fonts. These range from experimental to retro-inspired. Most are original designs, while a few are updated revivals. In addition to producing fonts for his own type foundry, John Bomparte also digitizes the type designs of Harry Warren (Breauhare).
