Years ago I did the cover for Kiss’ album “Rock and Roll Over”. When I did it, I styled it after another piece I had done—a cover for the Japanese graphics magazine IDEA. Over the years this piece has gotten more notoriety (founded or unfounded) than almost any other piece of art I’ve done. I’ve done many interviews about my experience doing this cover. This short interview was done for Rockpages Web Magazine, out of Greece, which is part of their year-long special on this rock group. Another more recent interview was done for “Tokyo Five” and can be seen HERE.
Metroscript is making it’s Hollywood debut on the big screen by appearing in a climactic scene in the Universal/Marvel release “The Incredible Hulk“. The font was used to create a large neon sign for “Williams Plumbing” that appears over the city. Check it out towards the end of Trailer 2.
A month ago Metroscript was featured in the MyFonts monthly newsletter “Rising Stars” which highlights the bestsellers among their newer fonts. To our surprise Metroscript was featured again in the just released June edition of “Rising Stars“—but in addition they are now highlighting in the newslettter my three other font familes: my take on Bank Gothic (with lowercase characters), PowerStation and Orion. Thank you MyFonts!
