Background

Wonder Brush is a display typographer’s guilty pleasure. It’s one of very few fonts ever made that can take intense abuse and still look natural.

Partly based on a 1969 Friedrich Poppl design called Poppl Stretto, but considerably fused with ideas found in interwar magazine ad lettering and signage, Wonder Brush caters to the idea that most graphic designers would rather use design elements they can enjoy. When you spend your days being “challenged” and “creatively tested” and “communicating the message,” you can definitely use a little bit of playtime. And this font gives you just that, playtime on the job.
