Whomp takes its inspiration from the work of an American master in sign
painting and alphabet manipulation: Alf Becker. In 1932, Becker began
designing a series of alphabets to be published in Signs of the Times
magazine at the rate of one alphabet per month. Nine years later, 100 of
those alphabets were compiled in one book that became an enormous success
among sign painters. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, many Alf Becker
alphabets were digitized with blurbs that falsely credit an "Alf Becker
typeface". Alf Becker was not really a typeface kind of guy. He was more of
a calligrapher and sign painter. His alphabets were either incomplete or
full of variations on different letters, and didn't become typefaces until
the digital era.

This particular Becker alphabet was quite incomplete. In fact, it wasn't a
showing of an alphabet, but words on a poster. Alejandro Paul took the
challenge of drawing, digitizing, restructuring, and finally building a
complete usable typeface from that partial alphabet. He then extended his
pleasure by once again playing with the wonderful possibilities of OpenType.
Whomp comes with more than 100 alternates, tons of swashy endings and
ligatures, all built into the font and accessible through OpenType palettes
in programs that support such features.

This is the in-your-face kind of font that stands among other Becker-based
alphabets as paying most homage to the vision of this great American artist
who saw letters a live ever-changing beings.

Whomp is right at home when used on packaging, signage, posters, and
entertainment related products.
