Designed by David Bergsland, Boxy is a display sans font family. This typeface has four styles and was published by Hackberry Font Foundry.

In my on-going quest for display fonts to be used with my books and on my book covers, I decided I need a squared sans serif. I started the build off of Fiscal, a font I designed back in 2006. I never liked the font, plus my tastes have changed. So, I opened it, made it narrower, increased the x-height, and various stuff like that. I made it much heavier—an ended up with Boxy.

Then my brain slapped me and said, “Why don’t you make a sorta modern version?” So, I did and decided to call that style Chic. But then I wanted a thin version also. Fiscal was always too heavy and ponderous for me. So, I made the Thin style. Finally, I felt I needed an italic of Chic.

OpenType features didn’t seem to work well with the family, so all I added was oldstyle figures. So, I ended up with another of my unique families—with two unmodulated fonts: Thin and Medium, and two modulated fonts: Chic and Chic Italic. But, I’m pleased with it. My hope is that you will like it also.

Font Family:
· Boxy Thin
