What is the Shrub font?

The new OpenType font Shrub feels like a printed, textural typestyle, influenced by the great slab-serif fonts of the 20th century and organic, messy effects of old Xerox copiers.
You might call this one a “multi-messter font” because it not only comes grainy and coarse, but also features a special stylistic alphabet set to add extra schmutz as you see fit. Users of Adobe’s Creative Suite applications can access this feature as either “Stylistic Set #1” in InDesign or “Stylistic Alternates” in Illustrator. The extra blotches can be turned on or off as you see fit. More…
Newly remastered in 2007, Shrub consists of glyphs that were once part of older Chank fonts, King Georges Regular & Bold, which originally came as multiple faces separated in “Clean” and “Freckled”. Now the clean and freckled versions of the font are all contained in one nifty OpenType font that does little tricks.
Put a little organic texture mixed with old-school legibility to make you flyers and other designs look like they were really printed! Shrub speaks with a compelling, grounded personality in a voice that’s easy to read.
