The origin of Quirky lay in the Duke Ellington number It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.

For some time Andy had wanted to create a font from expanded stroked lines. Then one day Andy started doodling. He had wanted to produce a light-hearted font, but with some classic touches. One day, when Andy was doodling in Adobe Illustrator, Quirky’s letterforms just appeared on the page as if from nowhere. First he drew the test word ‘hamburgefonts’ and then he just kept going, unable to stop. Character after character appeared as if by magic. From the start, Quirky had a life of its own.

The letterforms are rather more sophisticated than merely outlined stroked lines. Subtle adjustments to compensate for optical effects have been been incorporated. For example, horizontal stems have thicknesses slightly less than vertical stems and where stems join together, the thickening effect has been reduced by cutting into the joint.

Being almost monoline, Quirky works well reversed out of a solid background. So set, laugh and enjoy! Because Quirky will give you as much if not more pleasure in using it as Andy got in creating it! Subsequently, an italic version and then a thin version were created to form a family of three fonts.
