The Chank Company
This font was an initial sketch presented for a custom font job. While proposing this font concept, Chank also presented a fancy script, now a free font called Schwinger. The client requested a combination of the two styles, and thus emerged Swingdancer, the Font of the Month for June 2003.
Inspired by The Hunt Brothers "Lettering of Today" book, Schwing Shift is a textured interpretation of a clean, classic lettering from the art deco 1930s. Although these characters are fairly traditional, they have a hand-drawn feel that adds friendly twists, particularly in the lowercase. The extra light serifs conjure up an Armani feel, and the overall sophistication is reminiscent of Brooks Brothers.
Enjoy this font and use it often.
