I've worked together with the fabulous Rachelle Smith of What the Teacher Wants to come up with a new kid-friendly, teacher-friendly font. Rachelle's highly-popular teaching blog, What the Teacher Wants (http://whattheteacherwants.blogspot.com/) is a great resource for elementary teachers. She also sells educational products at Teachers Pay Teachers: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Rachelle-Smith
You'll want to call it many things. You'll swear it's a sport font in distress. You'll imagine it emblazoned on the flanks of battered starships. You'll wonder what niche, what genre it was ever meant to occupy. Is it a display font? Text? Is that a noise in your ear? A sounding pound against your thoughts? Ask what you think of that sound and it's potential to melt you where you stand, and you'll find this very font staring back on you.
Word up! DJ Dongboi and triple threat "JG" Roshell has been bustin' out for all the young font gunnahs out there. He bein' crazy, givin' out the love and non-stop dope moves... You feel it? Be showin' ya respect and holla at the Phat Boi an' y'all be cool. Aiiiigggghhht?! Phatboi is Da Next Big Thang! Stay bent.
