About Sidewalk Cafe BF Font Family

Sidewalk Cafe will serve up a look from your Font Menu that’s delectably deco. Though developed from a few hand-lettered words found on a 1930s poster, it retains a contemporary flavor. The shaded version is designed to be layered over Sidewalk Cafe Underlay, to create contrasting color possibilities, as both share the same kerning values. Supports Western and Central European Latin languages, in addition to Baltic, Celtic, Esperanto, Romanian and Turkish.

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).
