I adjusted my fedora and took a puff of my cigarette as I eyed the latest ad copy. “Sexsmith,” I muttered, with a twinge of intrigue. “A long-shanked, cracker-barrel clarendon, eh?”
I leaned in closer, studying the words on the page. “Cottage-style slab serifs and homespun curves,” I repeated, nodding thoughtfully. “I can practically smell the apple pie baking in the oven.”
Sexsmith, I mused, was the kind of typeface that exuded warmth and comfort. It was the kind of font you’d find in the local diner, scrawled on a chalkboard advertising the daily specials. It had a jangle pop feel, like the strum of a guitar on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
But make no mistake, Sexsmith was no softie. Its sturdy slab serifs meant it could hold its own, standing tall and unyielding in a world of flimsy, delicate typefaces. It was the kind of font that could take a punch and keep on going, like a boxer in the ring.
So if you wanted to give your message a touch of down-home charm, a bit of rough-and-tumble ruggedness, look no further than Sexsmith. It was the typeface for the hard-working, hard-playing, and hard-loving folks of this world. And I, for one, was ready to see it in action.
