Lump by Silas Dilworth, 1 font, $15


Lump started as a series of handdrawn buttons I made for a Lumpen event in 2005. This digital version keeps the linework loose and the corners choppy.

Use Lump wherever you need a hefty urban feel. Stack the letterforms like bricks to build a wall of type. The negative space and counters form patterns of cracks and mortar, obscuring the copy but binding the message in a neo-constructivist grid.
