Rock Band Fonts

ArcadeFire_Image_02.jpg

When deciding which typeface to use, there are basically two rules: 1. Don't ever use Comic Sans and 2. Don't ever use Comic Sans, even in an ironic fashion.

Despite these simple guidelines, sometimes even the reliable Arial just won't do. Sometimes you want something a little more special.

Step in the rock star fonts. Created by artist Jim Billy Wheeler, his superb alphabet comprises of bands such as Arcade Fire, Grizzly Bear and Hot Chip.

While it currently only goes up to the letter K, Jim has said he's designing the rest, which you can keep up-to-date with on his Facebook page right here.
