Loosely based on a combination of the lettering of Mark Simonson's "Alaska Fish House" sign and Emigre's "Brothers Bold" (mostly to fill in the many character gaps the sign left me with).


Really great, Ben. Modularity is actually fitting for this sign painter’s style, as it was often rendered according to the grid of bricks on the side of a building.

Here's a link to Mark Simonson's description of the Fish House sign.

Wow, this one really blew me away! Great work!

Beautifully rendered, especially in such as small grid space. I've attempted a fontstruction in the style of Brothers and had some issues with certain glyphs. I like your solution for the A. Nice complete character set too. Its good to see you posting here again.
