Bryan — a Font in Honor of Jon Hicks Dad

Jon Hicks, on hicks.design:

Growing up I was subconsciously inspired by the different aspects of design that he introduced to me, from mid-century vinyl record covers to architecture and signage. In particular, his distinctive architect’s handwriting was very evocative to me, and I decided I should try and capture it as a font. It could be something carrying his name that outlives him, and also something else to talk to him about.

So wish this was my handwriting — I also can see using it designs where some analog warmth is needed. Never mind the great story behind it, from one of the designers I admire the most.
