Some fontstructions just come together quickly. The idea was to find a way to achieve pixel-level color manipulation without manually coloring each pixel. Hope you find it entertaining if not useful.

The sample below shows all four versions of Inflate [Poof|Pop|Puff|Pfft], laid one on top of the other in successive weight reduction.

Great family Thal. The animated sample is fantastic and for some reason makes me thirsty for a Tab.
Comment by afrojet 2nd November 2009
Thanks everyone, one and all. Appreciate it.

*Goes off to search for tab related info*

Look what I just came across! Now I know what afrojet meant. For the record, this is the first time I have seen this. No Tab related (or any other) fonts were plagiarized in the making of this fontstruction. Still, (I presume) Tab came before fs Inflate. Shall I unshare it?

BTW, this image came from: and I only post it here as reference.

Ha! You better not unshare this because of a can of Tab. I certainly didn't mean to insinuate that you've secretly got a hardline addiction to a brand of diet cola that was big here the 80's, and whose iconic logo you maliciously stole for your own typographic pilfering. Nope. Not at all.

Sadly, if anything, this just illustrates that I watched too much TV in the 80s and that branding really does work. I mean the fact that I have a thirsty pavlovian response to a bold rounded 'a' on a pink background is just pathetic, don't you think? Shit, I never even drank Tab.

Haha. 80s TV was fun. I never liked the Transformers, but damn if I don't remember the theme song; taglines for an ungodly huge list of brands; logos for an immense number of companies. I don't remember having seen it, but I can't claim with 100% certainty if I never saw that can before.

Years ago, a friend got hold of some used up logo book. There was one logo that was missing the caption. I was sitting next to her and told her what it was. She then proceeded to quiz me on the logos and I got almost all of them right. I guess I am just too easily influenced.

And it's really cool that you were able to identify it. I'm going to run past you the next fontstruction before sharing it. :-)
