Amnezia

Amnezia

Amnezia is a display script inspired by a type-specimen dated in 1887 from Chicago based foundry Barnhart Brothers & Spindler. Initially designed for short announcement such as greeting cards, its use can now be more versatile due to its overall consistency and its adaptive shapes throughout the font. Even if the original drawing is more than a hundred years old, its contemporary aesthetics and its visual features are highly suited for our digital-era. In this font, every letter is meticulously connected to one another without sacrificing the flavor of the drawing. Its fast and aggressive aesthetic comes from its tight angle and a lack of curves. Simply, Amnezia has (almost) none – at least, it aims to have as many sharp and angular strokes as possible to give this visual hardness.

I like this one. One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way.

There weren't any arguments or curses like in the movies. See, your murderers come with smiles, they come as your friends, the people who've cared for you all of your life.
