A Bit About Barth

Last updated on: Published by: Remedy667 1

Where did it come from?

In 2019 I made up my own drawing challenge to coincide with the other popular October drawing challenges on Instagram. I followed the prompt list for Inktober but made up film titles from the prompts, writing them out in different “fonts” that I could make. I started the project in August by tracing out, I want to say, 45 different alphabets. I would then trace over letters to create words, so I was still creating something new each day on that day.

Barth was one of those 45 alphabets.

Website Updates

Last updated on: Published by: Remedy667 0

Hi! You may have noticed some new layouts, graphics, and pages around. The website is our pride and joy so we’ve been really active in changing things up lately! If you have any feedback or suggestions for changes please let us know.

What You Can Expect

There have been a lot of noticeable changes around here, the homepage and blog have undergone quite a change in appearance. Most of these changes are to try and help with the overall usability of the site, and some of the changes I’ve actually been wanting to make for a while, and just hadn’t had time for. Then there are some other changes…

New Features

You may have noticed there are some new logos on the home page and on a few of the individual font pages in their features sections. I’ve been using a lot of these terms (Doubles Elimination, Randomizer) over the last few years to evaluate my typefaces as I prepare them for release, and I wanted to make these features more known. I think they’re very beneficial, and make them stand out from a lot of the other stuff on the market.

Unfortunately, not every feature is baked into every font, and that can only mean one thing…

Font Updates

I’ve been going through all of my typefaces and compiling a list of which typefaces have what characters (I’m developing a certification system to explain this) and will soon start doing some major font updates. I’ll post about the new updates here, in the blog, along with my other channels. This will take some time to roll out, but I think they will give a lot more value to these fonts, and make them a lot more useful to you.

Also, if you’ve already downloaded a font that’s being updated, the update is free. You should just be able to download the newest version from the website where you originally purchased a license. Whether it’s from Retro Supply, Creative Market, etc. I’ll make sure that everyone has the new file before I post about it.

That’s all I’ve got for now. Thanks for checking out this post and supporting Remedy667. I’m looking forward to some more major updates soon.

A Bit of Background

Earlier this year I had been on a kick of watching Giallo films or having them on in the background and listening to their soundtracks. During this time, I was also seeing a lot of the film posters come up in my Pinterest feed. I had seen Giallo posters in the past with a much cleaner look, but in my mind, the hand-drawn lettering was much more interesting. It also seemed to work better with the paintings, and for the time, did a beautiful job uniting the film and soundtrack as a well-unified piece of artwork.

Connected Scripts

Last updated on: Published by: Remedy667 0

So, I’ve been building typefaces for a while now, but I’ve never made a serious (or even a half-hearted) attempt to create a connected script. I’ve had it explained to me several times, watched videos on YouTube and Skillshare, and even paid for some online lessons. Whether it was because I was too disengaged or for some other reason, the information never “took.”

Counting in Google Sheets for SEO

Last updated on: Published by: Remedy667 0

So, I’m working on this project where I’m optimizing descriptions for a client using Google Sheets. I need these descriptions to follow a very specific format, and to be sure that they do… I’m using Google Sheets. I’m also using it because I’m going to be populating them through an import with a CSV file. It just makes sense to do it all in one place.
