Custom font for HKL

I had pleasure to design a custom typeface for HKL (Helsinki City Transport). This font is based on old hand painted tram signage in Helsinki. I did some research of the methods how painters actually painted those letters. And then designed the typeface with some subtle modernization but preserving all those distinctive details and characteristics.
