We really don’t understand, why CA Cape Rock didn’t become an instant bestseller. It’s such a cute font, with so many fancy ligatures. Come on – have a second look.
Created with a fat Clarendon in mind, its bold and distinctive forms add spice and personality to every design requiring a strong display aesthetic. A large number of ligatures and custom ending characters are included in this OpenType font and can be accessed automatically or manually in most modern design applications.

A day in the history of Cape Arcona: Fonts in use

The excitement to see our fonts in use is a very special feeling. Sometimes we have tears in our eyes, some for good, some for bad. We remember having a good time watching the 2004, surf movie “riding Giants” (here is a trailer) when we saw the title and credits set in a slightly trashed version of our beloved CA KissKissBangBang.
 

We also got wet eyes when we saw the title design and credits of a German TV series airing at a TV Station who is THE pioneer of lower class television in Germany: RTL. They gave us soft erotic movies in the early ’90s when we needed them most. Anyway,the thing is that they used CA Texas Funeral for title design and cred­its of the show „Rach, der Restau­ranttester“. Since this font is free for noncommercial use, we are skeptical about how other people understand the term “commercial”.

Sometimes our fonts are irrevocably linked to subculture. We like that a lot. Actually we like the use of our fonts for independent music festivals a lot more then the use for products made out of butter or milk. So here comes a really trashy one. It’s for the “Silly Art F*ck Festival”, back in 2006, in Hannover (a city some of you G.I.s still remember) with some really crazy bands, like “B*tt F*ck P*ssy” (so much “u” missing here) or “Rauschabstand” or “Impulsantwort”. Great! All set in our CA Pussy Galore, everything fits together.
