Baksheesh downloadDesigner: Stuart Brown
Publisher: HamburgerFonts
Baksheesh was designed by Stuart Brown and published by HamburgerFonts. Baksheesh contains 12 styles and family package options.  

The Baksheesh family comes in three weights with accompanying italics and small caps.

The catalyst for the development of the typeface came from the desire to create a contemporary family of constructed letterforms built upon a flexible system. The aesthetic of the font is influenced by the characters drawn by Wim Crouwel in 1976 for Olivetti's typewriter font that could support varying character widths, hence Baksheesh's faux-monospace appearance.

Each of the characters has been designed according to an intricate grid, helping to rationalise the letterforms into a system that can be translated across the various styles. The flexibility of the grid also allows for optical adjustments to be made, for example stroke thinning at junctions and baseline/x-height overshoot for enhanced definition throughout.

Baksheesh is suitable for setting small amounts of text as a distinguishable and legible headline font.
