Giraffe was my first take on a standard sans-serif font. Before it I had only done big bulky crazy fonts, and I wanted to make a font that could be used for display type as well as body type. That approach definitely worked well, because Giraffe is now by far my most popular font.
Dropship is a sister font to Mothership; it uses the same height-to-width ratio, and very similar stylistic elements. I created it after Mothership as a way to have the same type of font, but with a more square style. I picked Dropship for the name because a dropship is housed within a mothership. If I end up creating another font in this series, I'm thinking of calling it Scoutship, or maybe Battleship.
Mothership is the first bulky font I created. I decided on the name after a great record label of the same name was formed. (a sub-label of Dirtybird Records) I designed the font to be very round and smooth-edged, and made it purposefully difficult to read. This font is definitely to be used more for large titles and more obscure design styles.
