The Kraken Font Foundry was conceived in early 2008, when I created my very first typeface; Arcadia. a typeface based upon the gaming cult classic 'Space Invaders'.
This began a love affair with unusual and slightly off the cuff typefaces, during experimentation with connecting letter forms, the typefaces Unremitting and Squiggles (which were showcased at 'D&AD New Blood' & 'Eleven Pt') emerged from the murky notebooks and moleskines.
Later on after a searching for a suitable fat font in a small project I took it upon myself to design my own, thus Bollard was created in the space of 48 hours.
Bollard is a fat and cuddly sans serif typeface which was created during typographic experiments with simple shapes and elements. It works best at sizes over 72pt and with simple contrasting colours.
