This is a bit of a long shot, but maybe someone here knows this. I came across this font project a few months ago that I think was based on a sign the creator kept seeing at a burger place? It was one of those marquee signs but they had used all different letters so it looked really random.

The designer had built a font inspired by that and worked with a developer to make it truly randomize which alternate was used as they typed.

Ring any bells? I can't remember how I found it the first time.

Update, I found it! For anyone curious it was Local Gothic by Christian Schwartz and Tal Leming.

enter image description here


Is it possibly Carey Type? "Lester Carey was a New Orleans sign artist whose work has been found on churches, corner stores, neighborhood bars, and other commercial buildings around numerous neighborhoods of New Orleans for three decades."

  • Not the one I was thinking of, but a neat project. Thanks!
