Inspired by American surf culture, Pacifico Font, designed by Vernon Adams in 2011, is an original and playful brush script cursive font. Pacifico Font was redrawn by Jacques Le Bailly at Baron von Fonthausen in 2016 and extended to Cyrillic by Botjo Nikoltchev and Ani Petrova at Lettersoup in 2017.
A lifelong artist, Vernon designed typefaces from 2007 to 2014. During this time he eagerly explored designing typefaces for the cloud-based era. His work spans all genres, from live typefaces to workforce text families and operating system UI. Vernon graduated from the University of Reading with an MA in Typeface Design and lives in California. His designs are mostly published as open-source Google Fonts, and his favorite projects include Oxygen Mono, Monda, and Bowlby One.
