- Handu is an affable hand-drawn sans-serif inspired by the hand-painted type and signage on the streets of Kolkata, India. Fitting then that it come to life with brush and paint.
When used for display purposes the organic, painted texture of Handu’s glyphs really shines. At smaller point-sizes the hand-drawn aesthetic still translates.
Handu comes in two styles, regular and shadow. Use each independently or overlay them for a little youthful emphasis.
- Here's a little sample some of the process of creating Handu. The video is me sketching out the omega glyph while staying in downtown Kolkata. And the picture was taken just after I painted some of the characters (little less than half of them), before digitizing them.
