Keith Urban video uses Splurge for lyrics

I never would have seen this except for a random comment on FB. This is so not my kind of music — style or lyrics. But it’s only the second time Splurge has been animated, to my knowledge, and that is exciting!*

Check it out:

Thanks to the good people at Gupta Media for making great use of Splurge.

* The first time was in “Hi Fonyód!

The Magic Christian uses Splurge in DVD menus

Every once in a while someone will spot one of my fonts in the wild for me. Recently, Nathan Diesel tagged me on FB, excited to have spotted the ever-popular Splurge on the menus of the DVD that he was watching: The Magic Christian.

Here are screenshots of the menu pages. While it’s a shame that fonts render so badly on DVD menus, and I wouldn’t have chosen this font for this application, it’s pretty cool to have my work alongside the giants: Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr.

Splurge used in Austrian film “Hi Fonyód!”

Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 12.01.59 PM

Austrian film company 2010 Entertainment has used Splurge very prominently in their film “Hi Fonyód!” Not only is it in the title and on the poster, but it’s also animated on screen to illustrate one character’s voiceovers.

This is the first time I know of that’s it has been animated. If you want to see it in action, check out the coverage of the premiere on Salzburg TV (also viewable on Vimeo).

And to see the trailer for the film (it looks like a dark comedy), look no further:

Thanks to everyone at 2010 Entertainment for this undeniable treat!

The Kickplate Project uses No 130 Fulton Street alphas

The Kickplate Project, a non-profit art project in a small town in South Wales that organizes free photography exhibitions, has used the hi-res bitmap version of No 130 Fulton Street in the flyer for their exhibition “From the Black Sea”.

It’s a great example of how grayscale type has such a different effect from vector-based type.

Thanks, guys!

Kersten uses Ticket Capitals on cute products

Dutch import and design company Kersten has used Ticket Capitals on some of their graphic products. Very cute!


If you are all lucky enough to have Ticket Caps in rubber, you could stamp some lightly stained, shabby chic wooden boxes and caddies. The options are endless!

Here’s a Pintrest board I found with lots of inspiration and things to decorate:
