About Sidestroke Font Family

The typeface is inspired by our love of old hand-painted signs in butchers, and based on some very quick sketches using a brush pen to find what shapes worked. There is quite a quirky element to the type, as we tried to create the original sketches by rotating the brush pen to reflect the strokes of a paint brush. This lead to a horizontal stressing, which is most noticeable in letters like C, G, S and J.

Sidestroke comes in 2 styles, both a standard solid version, and a pre-shadowed outline version. This can be outlined and divided in Illustrator to quickly create an alternate coloured fill for your letters.

The lowercase letters have been designed to automatically horizontally align with any uppercase letters, which is a great shortcut when creating logos or other unique type layouts.

About Ramen

Ramen is a brand new foundry that has just completed it's first font, Sidestroke. Based in Sydney, Australia, lead designer Dave Wells began his love of typography at a young age taking in inspiration from illustrative sources like cartoons. He was also heavily inspired by hand-painted signs at the local shops. Growing up, Dave found more chances to learn about typography through graffiti, but once studying, was able to learn about more practical avenues for lettering and typography.
