About LunchBox Slab Font Family


LunchBox Slab is the pair of LunchBox, a uniquely hand-drawn typeface that gives numerous customizable options and a fully authentic look. The serifs in LunchBox Slab are simple blocks, with bulbous terminals on curved letters, which creates a unique effect. Identical to its pair behind the scenes, LunchBox Slab’s OpenType features allow access to over 1,500 different characters. Contextual alternatives give each letter 4 different character styles, all cycling through each other to ensure that no two letters ever show up together. There is also a custom set of small caps, each with 4 style variations as well. Stylistic alternatives give an extra hand-drawn flourish, loop and slight variation, also with 4 different styles per letter. Discretionary ligatures pertain to both regular all caps LunchBox as well as stylistic alternatives. It gives special letter combinations a unique interaction, giving your design a unique and personalized look without spending hours creating it and outlining your text. Included are also a set of swashes that also have four style variations to both the regular and stylistic alternatives, as well as lowercase letters with ascenders and descenders. All of these options are available in Light, Regular and Bold. LunchBox Slab Ornaments includes nearly 200 different graphics, flourishes, frames, catchwords, text breaks and arrows. If you do not use OpenType but are using a program that includes a full glyph panel, you will be able to manually access each of the style variations you want. Enjoy!

About Kimmy Design

“Kimmy Design is based out of Santa Monica, CA, but it’s as mobile as I am,” Kimmy Kirkwood says. “I love finding new inspiration and I work from Seattle, Palm Springs, Santa Monica, or wherever the next adventure takes me!” Kimmy founded her company in 2010; the same year that she graduated from college. Her first typeface, Madeleine, which is based on a logotype that she had created for a hotel in Positano, Italy, was actually a part of one of her final collegiate projects. She used it as an opportunity to teach herself about the intricacies of type design and develop the programming skills needed to create a true working font. Since then, her most successful designs have included Lunchbox and Lunchbox Slab: quirky hand-drawn typefaces that give an incredible array of customizable options and an authentically hand-crafted look. “My goal with these,” she says, “was to make them unique enough that the end product from any designer would look as if it was all made by hand.” “I love organic typefaces. Creating something that looks naturally handcrafted and letting the customers make it their own. In every hand drawn family I make I include multiple weights, styles and variations.” Kimmy uses contextual alternates in her typefaces and typically creates 3-5 variations of each letter, giving her fonts a truly hand-lettered feel. “I also usually include stylistic alternatives, which range from creating simple variations on specific letters to a unique style alternative for every character. Small Caps are a great way to give more options to designers while keeping the width and size of the font consistent. All of my font families are multilingual, and many include full Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. Whenever possible, I always include some sort of swash - either in fancy capitals, at the beginning and end of characters, or stylistic swashes.” All of these customizable options give the young designer’s families an intimate, personal feel. “Two different people could use my font and create something totally unique from one another. That’s what makes them so fun to use!”
