8th AvenueDesigner: Russell McGorman
Publisher: Our House Graphics
8th Opportunity was created by Russell McGorman and published by Our House Graphics. 8th Opportunity contains 3 styles and household plan choices. p > Motivated by the strange, blocky lettering on the sides of a set of a set of plastic kitchen containers in my childhood house, 8th Opportunity is an advanced, somewhat syncopated typeface with a retro appearance and feel that at the exact same time brings an extremely contemporary attitude to your style. 8th Avenue works well as display font for product packaging, headings and logos.

Those pastel blue-green plastic boxes from the early 1950's, with white screen printed letters checking out "FLOUR", "SUGAR", "COFFEE" etc. on one side were a basic quiet existence in our house back then and for decades after. Seeing them-Even that soft blue-green colour felt like home.

" SUGAR", the soul survivor of that set has actually become one of those ordinary products of day-to-day life that in some way end up being easy icons of another time, ripe with memories.

Obviously I had to make a font.
