The SVG format requires Photoshop CC 2017 or Illustrator CC 2018 (or newer). The Regular TTF format works universally.
Hackney is entirely hand-painted sans serif. A raw, bold, condensed font, with brushy imperfections and an earthy realism.
SVG fonts or colors fonts are a great new format, which makes it possible to add loads of detail and texture not possible before. Hackney SVG keeps all the incredible definition of the real painted strokes as a transparent texture, so it gives you a proper hand-painted effect, without you having to do anything (or go near paint). SVG fonts work just like normal fonts, but allow so much more customization and look hyper-real. They can be used in any color and on any background.
Hackney is an all caps font, with two alternatives for every letter, to maintain the custom made look, without obvious doubles. It includes ALL European language support.
Hackney Font collection is designed to be an incredibly accessible hand-painted font.
It includes three versions of the font to suit everyone’s situation. (see screenshot 11)
Hackney SVG – Super realistic brush painted font (A drawn height of roughly 800 pixels)*
Hackney TTF – Traditional vector version of the font, less detail than the SVG but a great rugged counterpart that works universally on all software.
Hackney PNG – Incredibly high-resolution files of every glyph (3,000 x 5,000), for people who want to use the font on a very large scale.
Extra Painted Strokes PNG – 50 hand-painted strokes for you to design with.
To keep files size down only European language support is available in the SVG and TTF font.
HOWEVER, a much greater range of foreign support is available in the PNG files (inc. Vietnamese), and can be manually added to your text in Photoshop/Illustrator.
Please note the font previewer above can’t render SVG fonts, so don’t worry what it looks like there.
