"Sunwind" is not really made to write long copy. It is a font for shop signs and short sentences that need that hot, sunny and windy touch. And that is how I got around to designing it: I saw some letters on a shop sign in Cannes when driving into town. I shouted at my son Julius: "Quick take a picture of that sign, the blue one." That's what he did, only he used the macro setting, so I had a very small sign but lots of nice background.
Anyway I got the basic idea! Then I made a lot of sketches and this is what came out. I added a small caps set and I also made some initials as a rough version, so they look like written with a brush on heavy grain paper.
