Pumphouse is a serif alphabet with large exaggerated triangular serifs.
The result of this exaggeration is an alphabet that is flamboyant, dramatic and theatrical. So I decided to name it after the Pumphouse Theatre in Calgary.
The letters of Pumphouse remind me of ham actors or comic book heroes. I see them wearing outlandish costumes with enormous capes fluttering in the breeze and wings on their sandals and hats. Like all ham actors these letters are constantly trying to upstage each other. In spite of all their extravagance, or maybe because of it, I enjoy the show.
