Eastside™ is based on an old western font, commonly used as display type on posters at the turn of the 19th century.

In order to allow you to set subtle variations within the text, there are some alternate vowels which you can use when setting your type:

-- e in the e-acute character position
-- o in the o-acute character position
-- E in the E-acute character position
-- I in the I-acute character position
-- O in the O-acute character position

You can mask the accents above the alternate vowel characters by creating a box which has the same colour as the background colour of your design.

Because the regular and solid versions of the Eastside™ family are kerned and spaced exactly the same way, you can layer the solid fonts on top of the regular fonts, allowing you to create a shadow colour which is different from the foreground solid font colour. Simply set your text in the Regular or Oblique fonts and colour it with the values you want for the shadow slivers. Change the test to the Eastside™ Shadows font. Then copy that text and place the copy right on top of the source text, but change to the new text to the solid fonts. Finally, change the colour of the copied text to a shade which will compliment the shadow slivers.

To adjust the gap between the main body of the font and the shadow slivers around them, simply follow the steps described in the section above and then shift the solid font text until it is in the desired position. You can create many interesting effects by using this technique.

If you need a western font which serves as a good companion to our Eastside™ fonts, check out our Outlaw™ western family.

Each font in the Eastside™ family has a full character set of 242 letterforms, with all characters designed in the style of the font.
