Struck Dead Font

Struck Dead Font

Made by Cumberland Fontworks

The extreme stressing on this font is madness with a particular method, including a kind of offset "ink shadow" common to some kinds of ailing presses. It's a look I see a lot in old pulp magazines, and since that's where I've been spending a lot of mental time, lately, I had it in my head that I'd have to play around with that look next time I needed to make a stressed font for a project. The result is probably the most tortured-looking font I've done so far.

An interesting challenge was the spacing and kerning. I couldn't rely much at all on any kind of automated process, since the little bits of "print junk" would confuse any such method into uselessness. I'm pretty happy with what I came up with for the kerning, but I'll probably keep fiddling with it in future versions; drop me a line if there's a kerning pair you'd like to see improved.

Struck Dead is a full-keyboard font with no extended characters. It's designed for sizes between 12 and 36 points or so.

If you're interested in licensing this font for public or organizational use, email me at and be sure to specify the font's title. I'll respond with instructions.
