Higgs Boson Blues font a vintage wood type

£12.00

With Higgs Boson Blues I carved every letter by hand on linoleum. Then hand printed multiple copies of each glyph to make it as authentic as possible. It’s in the tradition of old American Woodtype from the 19th century.

Higgs Boson Blues — Two font formats

Higgs Boson comes in two different font formats. The very new OpenType-SVG Bitmap font and the traditional and standard vector font format.

The Bitmap font is, like the name suggests created with bitmaps. It does not contain any vector information; this gives it so much more detail than the traditional vector font format.

The OpenType-SVG font has an extraordinary amount of texture and detail. What you have looks the same as the handmade block print—awesome.

Higgs Boson Blues is suitable for a broad range of designs and is the perfect font to get that vintage western look and feel. Use it from t-shirts, branding and packaging to book covers, letterheads and headlines.

Because its hand printed, it has all that wonderful grunge texture. Not digitally recreated texture—real texture with all the imperfections that brings.

If you need an authentic letterpress font style, Higgs Boson Blues should fit the job—perfectly

Higgs Boson Blues OpenType Alternatives

Each letter has three alternative versions. Perfect to add a touch of random printing to your design work.

OpenType SVG Please read before you buy

As OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts are new, support for them is limited.

They only work in the latest versions of Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+, plus a handful of other native OSX apps. They also work on the more modern versions of windows again only in Photoshop CC2017+ and Illustrator CC 2018+.

Adobe Indesign does not fully support OpenType-SVG bitmap fonts.

PNG Image backups

If your software older than the recommended versions, I’ve provided high-resolution .png image backups. You can still manually compose letterforms inside photoshop or your app of choice.

A standard vector font is included with your purchase. It will never be as detailed as the SVG version. That said it still looks cool and has a full European character set.
