Font Designer: Martin Wait, 1991
Bertram™ is the perfect font for setting titles in comic strips and similar designs. UK designer Martin Wait created this font 1991, after he was inspired by the casual style of circus graphics. In fact, this jolly and lighthearted font was even named after one circus in particular: the Bertram Mills Circus. Bertram is an all-caps font, with capital letters placed on both the upper and lowercase keyboard strokes. Additionally, Bertram letters sport a 3D-like drop shadow, a distinctive feature when comparing this to many other display fonts.
