Soft Block Pro started off as a simple revival of a typeface I found on a vintage poster (see above). I've always appreciated athletic typefaces. They are simple, utilitarian and no non-sense. I wanted to modernize quite a few characters and soften up the edges for a nice vintage look and feel. — Quite a few hours later, Soft Block Pro is now a 3 weight class must-have typeface for vintage and athletic aficionados alike. It features a few basic glyphs to help get the job done, but make no mistake, this is a true display typeface.
