About Hurricane Font Family
A storm has been brewing. It’s Hurricane. A complete redesign of a popular style. New flair and excitement abounds with this fast moving spirited brush script. This updated version of Hurricane was created with high end advertising in mind but can also be used for designs outside of commercial uses— greeting cards and social expression, or even scrap-booking projects. There are three regular styles and a PRO version of the script styles, plus a graphics font to add an extra breeze to your work. Hurricane Regular is straight forward with the more Roman capital forms. The Script version swaps the caps out for the more flourished uppercase. And finally, the Swash version contains many of the alternate letter forms found in the PRO version. Hurricane Pro offers the features of all three of the regular Hurricane versions with added OpenType programming and additional alternate glyphs. The Contextual feature of Hurricane swaps out the regular forms for more flashy characters along with necessary ligatures and alternates that give perfect flow to the words. Access the stylistic sets for even more creative options. In addition, see GLORY— a sans serif spin-off (pun intended) to complement the script styles. The Glory styles contrast to Hurricane’s slanted, brushy speed. In addition, an inline font has added to complete the pro package. I sincerely hope you enjoy this exciting update to a font I have always found to have huge potential.

MyFonts debut: Apr 30, 2016
“I think it’s important as an artist to challenge myself and work outside of what’s comfortable,” TypeSETit’s founder, Robert Leuschke, said in his Creative Characters interview. Based just outside of St. Louis in the heart of the United States, Rob began his career working alongside some of the best lettering artists in the industry at Hallmark Cards. “I began working in the Lettering Department in July of 1983, and that’s when I really began to learn how to do lettering,” he says. “Working at Hallmark Cards was like going to graduate school and getting paid for it. It was fantastic.” He began working as a freelance graphic designer in the late 1980’s and realized that he could increase the production of his work by creating customized fonts of his hand lettering. He has created fonts ever since. After designing a few fonts for larger foundries like ITC and Bitstream, he began offering his designs on MyFonts in the summer of 2004. Since then, he’s seen great success with typefaces such as Corinthia, an elegant script that was featured on our Top Ten Fonts of 2008 list, and Style Script which was one of our Most Popular Fonts of 2013. Where does Rob draw inspiration for his noteworthy designs? “I try to look for things that are not what I would typically do,” he says, “then give them my own adaptation. If something catches my eye, I make a note or take a picture with my cellphone. That’s how I came up with Arizonia. I saw some lettering painted on a truck and took a photo.” “Sign painters have such a gift for beautiful letterforms. As for other designs, since I am proficient at much but master at nothing, I tend to combine styles. Take for example, Lovers Quarrel or Passions Conflict. They both have a calligraphic feel, but I intentionally broke rules and added swashes and swirls, especially with the uppercase forms and then gave them a more contemporary script look.” Prior to 2004, embellished forms were a rarity in the font world. “I think my introduction of more hand lettered looking fonts inspired other artists to think outside of traditional typeface design. For example, I was one of the first designers to offer words and phrases in glyphs with my Holiday Font. I only recently discovered that a term for that is ‘word art.’ I’d like to think that I have been a trend-setter in that respect.”
