Fonts based on tooth paste, ketchup

By

What do you get when you empty a tube of toothpaste or a bottle of ketchup? Free fonts of course, according to Utrecht based design outfit Autobahn. You can find more pictures of the process and fresh squeezed Truetype font files (Tomatica, Gelvetica and Heldentica) at their website.

  1. When Dutch say “ketjap” they mean soy sauce; when they say “ketchup” they do mean tomato ketchup. Tomatenpuree is just tomato puree. Two different things as puree is puree’d tomatoes whilst ketchup has all sort of additives in it, amongst others vinegar, sugar and salt.

  2. You’re right. I had a brain-fart, what can I say? In the hope that nobody had seen my mistake I had already corrected it, but at that time I had yet to approve the comments. :)

    For the confused reader: I had contrasted the Dutch “ketjap” with the English “ketchup,” forgetting for a moment that we Dutch also use the word “ketchup” for a certain type of tomato sauce. On noticing my mistake I removed that part of the text.
