Type Gallery – Teebrush Paint

Font Designer: Tomi Haaparanta, 2002

Finnish designer Tomi Haaparanta created the Teebrush Paint™ family of type in 2002. With these fonts, Haaparanta captures the spontaneity of hand-lettered sign painting. The family has two fonts: Teebrush Paint and Teebrush Paint Alternate. The alternate, like its companion, is a “complete” font. They both contain full character set. Yet, in the two fonts, each character has been drawn slightly differently. Interspersing the two fonts with each other in text will give a better approximation of authentic painted lettering. This technique may also be used with broad calligraphic families like Zapfino®. Normally, such variety is not available through typefaces alone.
The “brush strokes” that make up the letterforms in Teebrush Paint are very visible. Most of the letters are made up of two or three quick strokes – when sign painters are at work, they tend to paint very quickly. This movement-like quality is visible in the curves and terminals of Teebrush’s letters.
Let the outstanding quality of this typeface convince you.
