About Hackberry Font Foundry

The Hackberry Font Foundry was founded in the 1998 to sell the fonts David Bergsland designed to be used in his digital publishing training books. The goal of David’s fonts is to add a hand-drawn edge to them. In this age of increasing technological “slickness” he purposely loosens the structure and adds “air” to the glyphs with breaks. All fonts are designed as OpenType Pro fonts with special production features. Almost all of the fonts have oldstyle numbers as well as small cap figures, plus small caps, discretionary ligatures & special dingbats. They really shine in book production. The production families have contrasting serif and sans serif families both using the same vertical font metrics—for run-in heads and the like. At present he mainly writes and designs books.
