I've been a lifelong Red Sox fan. There's so much nostalgia and history embedded in the game of baseball. The signage around Boston's Fenway Park has always captured my attention. Thick, cream paint on green iron and tin around the ballpark. The letterforms are often classic-but-handmade.
It was an old ticket stub from the 1946 World Series (Boston vs. St. Louis) that inspired the Grandsans typeface. It has a sign-painterly feel, early-mid twentieth century sensibility, and a quirky character—especially in letters like E, M, N. It was fun filling out the alphabet based on those handful of letters found on the ticket.
The family includes two styles: Regular and Rough. All-caps with numbers, basic punctuation and a few alternates and special glyphs for maximum vintage baseball vibes. Even a backwards K for scorekeeping those "strike out swinging" plays.
