Besom Extended | Handwritten Brush Font

Many of you will know already the previous brush font “Besom”. A free hand drawn font designed / painted by Krisjanis Mezulis from RIT Creative – a product design agency based in Northern Europe in Latvia. Run by the founders Krisjanis Mezulis and Gatis Vilaks.

Besom was a great succes amongst the design community, being published by houndreads of blogs and forums. It has reached more than 40 000 views on Behance, and downloaded more than 30 000 times.

The new Besom Extended is the pro version. Comes with upgraded glyphs, cyrillic and latin extended character base, with small letters included. Every single letter has been drawn with a thick brush on white paper, this making the typeface as unique as it gets. The visual lettering style makes it harmonic and gives a playful, fresh and original look.
