What is the Balboa font?

Balboa is a display design combining elements of early sans serif and grotesque types with contemporary types. It evolved from ATF Headline Gothic, Banner (a headline typeface I drew for the San Francisco Chronicle), and Newsweek No.9, a Stephenson Blake-like grotesque I designed for Roger Black’s 1980 redesign of Newsweek Magazine.
There are nine styles, including the three new styles that have been added in 2014: Medium, Light and Ultra Light.

  • Balboa Ultra Light
