Quite frankly, I forgot about creating Shameless, and the typeface sat on my hard drive for almost a year. Luckily, my daughter Isobel saw the initial drawings one day and asked me about those pretty letters and I remembered… yep, that happened. Time made this a better typeface. With fresh eyes and no deadline, much was redrawn, retooled and expanded into something I truly enjoy using. That said, Shameless makes extensive use of contextual alternates to create a proper ebb and flow from letter to letter akin to handwriting. Interestingly, there are only a handful of ligatures. Instead, many special combinations rely solely on Opentype. Mix in stylistic, swash and titling alternates alongside the other available options, and you can have a lot of fun.
