dearJoe 7 was developed by Jeroen van der Ham and released by JOEBOB graphics. dearJoe 7 consists of 1 design. p > The dearJoe series of fonts came to life around the year 1999, when I created dearJoe 1, which was a first (and half-assed) attempt to transform my own handwriting into a working typeface. Having the ability to key in my own hand had always been a youth fantasy, and although I only partially understood the software, a working typeface was produced and I chose to put it on the web for people to use in their own personal projects.

Which they did: at this minute the dearJoe 1 typeface has actually been downloaded millions of times and can be found on Vietnamese riksjas, Tasmanian gyms and chocolate stores on 5th Opportunity for instance.

The typeface is not something I am especially happy with, but it started me of in constructing what's now the JOEBOB graphics foundry.

Inbetween developing other typefaces, the dearJoe series has ended up being a style I revisit every once in a while, attempting to produce an upgrade on how my handwriting has progressed, along with my abilities in developing typefaces that imitate real handwriting. In the last years or so I began carrying out ligatures and alternate characters, which helped a lot in pertaining to a result that can almost pass for actual handwriting.

The 2019 dearJoe 7 font style is the most recent addition to this typeface family.

All characters were scanned from handwritten notes, cherrypicking the characters and letter-combinations I liked finest. They were written with a Lamy M66 B pen and just minor changes were made to the initial scans, leaving most little defects and rough edges as they were for a convincing ball-point on paper result.

The font comes with over 150 ligatures, making certain the font has a variated and reliable overall look.
