Highground Highground Highground

Highground is a fun typeface for your punk band to make shitty posters to hang on electrical poles around town.

Growing up playing DIY metal & punk shows was the inspiration behind this typeface. The Highground was a venue off of Veteran’s boulevard in New Orleans, LA that has tragically shut down. Highground the typeface is an ode to Highground the venue. It attempts to capture the punk & metal spirit of the venue and the feeling it evoked for my friends and I when playing and attending shows there.

Highground was developed over a year of attending Type@Cooper West ’16 in San Francisco. The early stages of Highground were inspired by Nicholas Jenson’s Rotunda.
Highground still has a twinkle of that inspiration, but it has seen a dramatic shift in goals and aesthetic. A write up on the process will be on my medium account soon.

The navigation, titles, body copy and beyond are all set in Sanomat Sans, designed by Commercial Type. Glyphs and Robofont were put to work to create our b-e-a-utiful typefaces. And of course, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign were used in the creation of this site, specimens, images and everything else your eyeballs gaze upon.

The foundry is hosted on this little thing called the World Wide Web and designed by the homie, Ben Jackson. Last but not least, special shout outs to the SF and NY Type@Cooper programs for teaching us right from wrong. We would be stranded on an island without the help of these glorious people: Cara di Edwardo, James Edmondson, Frank Grießhammer, Tânia Raposo, Stéphane Elbaz, Sumner Stone, Christian Schwartz, Berton Hasebe and many more.
