A proper gander

Not many of the new fonts that get launched every month get a propaganda department-style press launch. But Tooting Sans, which has been designed by Stuart Brown for Hamburger Fonts, has had the full WWII treatment.

The limited-edition screenprint that launched the font is a reworking of a propaganda poster produced by the British Government in 1939. Not only is the poster a good way to get the attention of busy art directors, but it also gives the viewer a good opportunity to have a proper gander at the font at a large size.

Tooting Sans is available from Myfonts.com
