Ben Eine has collaborated with typographer Chank to create Tenderloin, a free font. Based on a font called The San Francisco Font, which was inspired by a Philip Morris till receipt, Eine first used this style for his show at the White Walls gallery last March.
“Only using the P and the M, I managed to create the whole alphabet, probably looking nothing like the originally intended version – but I was happy with the result. I’ve used this font on a few canvasses but more importantly I’ve pushed and developed this in interesting ways on the streets. It’s become one of my favourite typefaces because of how versatile it is.”
Tenderloin is now available to download for free at Chank’s website.
