KnucklePuck Font – Exclusive Vector Font Download

December 4th, 2009

By Graham Smith

In this font exclusive, we present KnucklePuck, a modular display font created by Austin Roesberg. In my ongoing search for new fonts, I find myself writing to many font designers to see if they would ‘part’ with their digital creation. Sometimes they don’t answer, sometimes they answer ‘no’, and on occasion a ‘yes’ comes my way.

KnucklePuck was found on Behance. With no mention of font availability on Austins Behance Profile, I approached Austin to see if he would consider making KnucklePuck available as a download. With a few carefully crafted and well placed words, an email was promptly dispatched. Austin agreed. So here we are, Noupe can present KnucklePuck as an exclusive free font download for your enjoyment. You’ll find the download link in the bottom of this post.

Designer Profile

Austin Roesberg Profile

Austin Roesberg

I am a 24 year old designer currently living in Brooklyn, NY. A 2007 graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), I specialize in print design but have a background in designing for the web as well. I’m always looking for new methods of design and as well as the time to actually put new ideas into production.

About the Font

This font was all about problem solving. I had to find a method to designing a font using only 3 shapes (square, rectangle and quarter circle). I decided to make things a little difficult for myself by restricting the font to 3 rows and 2 columns per letter. The only exceptions to that layout were the I, M and W – for obvious reasons.

I also wanted to give the font a unique look by keeping something in common with each letter. in this case, most letters have a curved bottom left corner. The only letters that were exempt from this were letters that don’t have feet, such as the C and O.

The end result was a heavy, bulky font that had a somewhat playful look because of the curved shapes in the letters. It reminded me of a dense rubber hockey puck, so I chose to pay homage to a childhood favorite movie of mine, The Mighty Ducks 2 and named it Knucklepuck.
