Ben Flynn, a.k.a. EINE, shot to international fame when David Cameron presented one of his works to President Obama as a gift on his first official state visit, but is arguably more famous for ‘Alphabet Street’ — the shutters and murals he painted in his trademark colours and typography in Middlesex Street, London. Ben Eine is one of London’s most prolific and original street artists who specialises in the central element of all graffiti — the form of letters. So it’s only natural that his work should be adapted to become a font for modern age computers. So Chank Co worked with EINE to create TENDERLOIN, a new font which is presented free for you here today. Tenderloin comes in two beautiful styles that can be overlapped. The uppercase are the fills, and the lowercase are the shadows; set them in defferent colors on overlapping text blocks and voila! you get thrilling two-color type! Ben likes to call this his ‘San Francisco font’ because it is based on the lettering style he used on a number of aerosol murals and letters he painted on the shutters and walls of San Francisco’s Tenderloin district in 2010 and 2011. Drawn by EINE and digitized by CHANK, this wicked, beefy, shadowy, hand-painted alphabet has been carefully digitized and fontified for your typing pleasure.
