Indie is a trendy script, result of the large range of possibilities that can be accomplished utilizing a pointed brush. (1 )

" You Only Live When" state The Strokes, (to me, signs of indie music) so, what would represent that feeling of volatility much better than a brush?

As you might currently know, this time inspiration originated from hipsters and indies around us: We might often criticise them, we might often wish to be like them, but the reality is that the universo gráfico they produced these previous years is enormous, loaded with colour and variations. (2 )

Brush lettering and Indication painting are fields I have actually been fond of since I started as a designer. Nowadays, these designs are getting a lot of attention and possibly it is because of the indisputable mark of life that is materialised when using a brush. This tool is so expressive that shows the enthusiasms and worries of the artist, and materialises that concept of "living the present", so popular in this era.

When you see Indie, you think about skaters, rollers, surfers, hiphop dancers, street artists, summertime, and why not? California beaches.

So if you feel life is just one, it's about time you got Indie into your typefaces' collection!


Indie comes in 4 designs plus another one which consists only in capitals. Indie; Indie Shade; Indie Shade Solo; Indie Inline are all open-type programmed and have precisely the very same glyphs and metrics, so you can combine them without probem. (I.E. You might utilize Indie Inline, then write the very same word utilizing Indie Shade Solo, and lastly put them together).

In applications such as Adobe Illustrator, the typeface has good outcomes when fi ligatures is triggered. Nevertheless, if you want a more casual look, activate the contextual and the decorative ligatures.


1. After several years of practicing calligraphy I can say that to me, there's nothing more satisfying than having the ability to produce fonts out of your own handlettering. I owe a lot of this brush-style to Carl Rohrs. He was the really first calligrapher who taught it to me. His design is distinct and what he can do with a brush is genuinely splendid. I'm serious.

2. In spite of some particular cases, I can state I enjoy to live in a present in which Typography is living a type of Renaissance together with Lettering. Like it happened with W. Morris a century back, handmades are being revalued/reborn, and some of this might be occurring thanks to these indie designers that, attempting to be distinct, provided new/fresh air to various areas of graphic design.
