BuzzFeed News mocks Trump, creates new Font called 'Tiny Hand'

James Hannaham, author of Delicious Foods, wrote a piece of satire on U.S. President Donald Trump's handwritten noted from the debate. Readers noted the cryptic credit at the bottom that referenced Tiny Hand as the font. 

 

There was no Tiny Hand font, until Buzzfeed made one.

BuzzFeed News executive director Saeed Jones sent the first draft of Hannaham's post to writer Ben King. The writer then started to research on "Trump notes debate" to further visualize the handwriting style that will serve as the base for the identity of the story and the font. In his article, King describes president Trump's notes as "almost always written at an angle, scrawled on top of printouts of articles from the internet." He was struck by the peculiar delivery of the notes and highlighted what he said as an "idiosyncratic" way that the president writes the alphabet. This further ignited his passion to make bring the font Tiny Hand into life.

King's colleague Mark Davis had experience in designing typefaces for Font Bureau. Hence, the typographer got to work in digitizing the letters.

Some of the reviews had cited error with the font as it kept on cutting off a part of the letters suck as the tiny bit of the bottom part of the letter y, part of the dot over the i and more. These are internal settings that causes the phone to crash. Some people in the comment section, despite respecting the president, do like the font due to its style. 

Is Trump too hard on the media?
