Philadelphia Phillies 1980's Era Font

Recommended Posts

So I was feeling a bit nostalgic for my favorite Phillies unis and decided that I'd create a font based on their old logos from the 1980's. I brought in a lot of inluences that I could find and tried to make a font that fits the bill. Here are a few samples:

Here's the characters I've created, as well as some of the ligatures and stylistic alternates I've created:

Let me know if you have any comments or if you have other samples of the letters from back then you'd like to see added. I plan on releasing it once it get it all tweaked!

I think I have most of the kerning done. I've uploaded an initial release here. Download it, give it a try, and let me know if there are any problems with it!
