Ever see some handwriting and think it looks girly? Strange how handwriting never looks manly, huh?
Well, this isn’t really the time to get into it. Cyborg Sister is a new font based on the concept of making a nice clean font with a bit of girly style. I wanted to emulate the cute, rounded letterforms that are the hallmark of “girly” handwriting (especially middle school/junior high).
Originally the working title for my files was “LilSis” which was short for “Little Sister Cyborg.” My concept was something that looks like the neat handwriting of a sister (that it also a cyborg). Unfortunately I realized that 1) That’s a pretty long name for a font, and 2) I’d have created a font starting with the word “Litter” and then another starting with the word “Little.” In the end I shorted it to “Cyborg Sister” which sums things up nicely.
As the name implies, The font on a whole seems fairly standard, but the design of the lowercase w & x, along with the majority of the uppercase characters, gives it a softer more handwritten feel.
I’m actually very pleased with how this one turned out–I think it has a great deal of character for what could be an otherwise normal sans-serif! Cyborg Sister may not be as eye-catching as other fonts, but I think its warmth and charm set it apart. I can see this font working in a lot of different situations, so I hope you find it useful!
In other news, I got pretty sick on Friday. I was hoping to be further along on several fonts I was working on, but took a break to throw up a bunch. Bummer!
