Barber typeface is an ode to the glorious art of Vietnamese signpainting. Hand-painted signs, which once dominated urban areas, now remain on storefronts of very few businesses in the Cho Lon area. This typeface was rendered based on one of such remnant—a barbershop’s sign in District 5, Saigon circa mid-1980s. By late 2018, the old barbershop’s sign was no longer visible hidden behind a newer, extended metal one.
