My thoughts on Sharpie
Sharpie, designed by Théo Guillard, is named after the popular kind of marker with a broad and a narrow side. It’s more a display typeface that shows some calligraphic vibes, which make it seem approachable, casual and friendly. But friendly in an angular, edgy way. It shows some speed, contrast, and rhythm. Except for using it in a title or some headings, Sharpie also works for very short paragraphs or marginalia and the Regular weight is still legible in sizes around 16 px.
Sharpie is available on Fontshare, a free fonts service launched by the Indian Type Foundry with the mission is to make high-quality fonts accessible to everyone. When I discovered a fault in the kerning of the typeface, they immediately fixed it. So obviously they stand by their word 😉.
What do you think? Is Sharpie something for an upcoming project? Tell me in the comments below!
