Can I have the font that you are using for Jolly Icons and Jolly Bundle logos?
The logos are not made with a font, it’s a custom lettering work made by Olly, our illustrator and designer of hand-drawn icons.
To make a lettering logo, the designer doesn’t draw the entire alphabet in a selected style and then position the letters to spell out the word. The word is created as a single unique image, same as illustration. However, the principles of typography are also applied for lettering, such as developing single weight lines for balanced typographical contrast.
Custom lettering job is expensive (starting with $150 per hour, $600 for a two-word logo). If you still absolutely need it, send us your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll receive a response within a few days.
