And Bingo was his name-o.


While I was in the U.S. vacationing over the holidays, I partook in a lively night of bingo at Sunset Bingo in lovely Beaverton, Oregon with my lovely girlfriend and her family. While sitting out the more costly rounds of the game, the cheap bastard that I am, I crafted up a lively modular vernacular typeface for Néojaponisme readers out of the materials available. Download it here.

    Yay type.
    I like what you did with C, D, P and Q. The join at the top of the G that doesn’t read as such is a nice use of inherent recognition. I feel like the L and J aren’t really up to scratch at all, and F and N could possibly undergo some tweaking as well.
    What really puzzles me is the V though – what was your reference point there?

    No reference, just screwing around.
