Background

“44th President” is based on the handwriting of President Barack Obama. A variety of sources were studied and the font produced from those references.

Barack Obama is the 8th left-handed American president. His left-handed stroke is quite obvious. As seen in recent legislation signing ceremonies, President Obama uses the “hooked” style of left-handed writing where the paper is held horizontally and the pen is “pulled” diagonally over the writing surface, and his signature is bold and elegant.

The script flows swiftly with a clear and fluid motion, and includes Central European, Baltic, Romanian and Western European character sets.
