Barrowboy Release - App Suggestions?
0

I've just released Barrowboy on myfonts. It was inspired by the hand written sales tickets you see on fruit stalls, but I don't think I'll be selling many to market traders! Any marketing suggestions? Polite ones only please!

For some reason the other thing that jumped to mind when seeing this was playing cards. Perhaps you could mock some up?

Seems that this would appeal to a number of niche markets, such as

Signmakers
Kid-oriented computer games
Scrapbooking websites

It's a very jazzy font, with the didone structure and the hornlike flaring of the verticals. Perhaps it would serve the interests of electro-swing musicians and other '20s-'30s retro pursuits.

Like any other product it's helpful to know who your market is. If it's graphic designers, show mockup designs that show the type in it's intended usage.

Yes, you're right Chris. I've decided to go down the kiddy route (see attached). Thanks HVB. Any other suggestions gratefully received.
