ITC Eborg

Designed by George Ryan

Eborg, a truly unique and beautiful san serif font, is from the trigger finger of the original “Font Cowboy,” George Ryan. Imbued with the same quick and infectious sense of humor as it’s creator, Eborg is comfortable playing many roles. From kid’s books to movie posters about disfigured, basement-dwelling opera buffs, Eborg works well in many diverse situations.

Eborg was conceived one boring winter’s evening as Mr. Ryan was house-sitting for some friends. Saddled with poor television reception (no cable) and an uninspiring book in his lap, George’s thoughts turned to letters. Soon his sketch book was being filled with the drawings that would become this wonderful and quirky typeface. The name Eborg is what George's older brother Joe used to call him when they were kids. Eborg was his idea of what George should sound like when filtered through pig latin. This naive and humorous attempt at a moniker for George ended up years later providing a perfect name for his new font.

The Eborg design became the inspiration for the developement of the Adderville font family, also by Mr. Ryan. It plays the part of display font to Adderville’s text, while at the same time possessing a look distinct enough to carry its own identity.

Stay tuned for more new designs from the strangest font cowpoke of the Old East.
