Send Article to a Friend

Extensis has set a new standard for pre-release promotion of a software product - the font management tool Suitcase Fusion 2, due out soon - with a hilarious spoof trailer for Bravefont, "a historical, romantic, action-adventure, science fiction drama" featuring Stone Serif (Citizen Kern), Lucida Blackletter, Sean Symbol, and Corvina Skyline (My Big Fat Greeking Wedding) and with a supporting cast including Gill Sans (The Fontographer's Wife) and Dom Casual (It's a Wonderful Ligature). Go watch the video, and pay close attention so you don't miss any of the jokes.
