Custom Lettering for an Epic Slash Bash Event

Custom font design

This type assignment was a lot of fun to customize! This year’s design needed more oomph, so, beginning with the letterforms of Fette Fraktur, then wresting them into beautiful capitals and flowing vines created a much stronger image. Attendees to this year’s event were trying to buy the hoodies off the backs of the staff! Make sure to reserve some time after your Halloween celebrations this year. It’s gonna be fun!

Slash bash all started with a little fun with some gourdes I brought from home and a katana from Jessica Brittain. From slashing at a few pumpkins in the parking lot, to last year’s full blown 1000+ pumpkins demolished with all sorts of implements including a robotic arm, catapult, paintball guns, and of course a 200 ft crane.

Thanks to my designer peeps at E|K for their contributions. (Brandon Jeppeson, Shawn Murdock, William McCrery)
