Adult Human Male
[Alex Hy]

Adult Human Male is the type foundry of Malaysian designer Alex Hy, who is located in Berlin or Ireland. His Twitter account says that he is New York, Paris and Coolock. His Dafont account calls him Irish. Whatever. Alex has two aspects, a commercial one, expressed in his commercial foundry Adult Human Male, and a free one via his Squack site on Dafont.

The commercial Alex created the grunge stencil typeface Butterworth (2011), the hand-drawn Teksi (2011), the monoline squarish family Ebdus (2011), Valis (2011, futuristic), and the thin avant garde monoline typeface New Slang (2011). Gordito (2011) is a graffiti style bubble font that says Smurf.

In 2012, Alex published the poster caps typeface Areaman, Stink Lines (multilined typeface) and Penang (art deco signage typeface seen on Penang by the creator). Straights Light is a beautiful pair of bilined all caps typefaces. Dale Kids is a children's book typeface. Hokkien (2012) is an art deco typeface with Chinese influences. Mister Mustard is a chubby rounded art deco typeface. Barkley (2012) is a textured caps typeface with a chalk board feel. Liner Notes (2012) is a bilined hand-drawn typeface. Bartleby (2012) is a hand-drawn all caps display font.

The free font foundry Squack has the hand-printed typefaces Barker Allcaps (2012), Scrapist (2012, sketched), Billy Boy (2011, 3d), Quito Chicken (2011, 3d), Fred Wild West (2011, a grungy western face), Coolock Black (2011), Zapftig (2011), Ringworm (2011), Suicide Draft (2011), National Granite (2011, a 3d stone chisel face), Whiskey Fingers (2010), Wank Hands (2010) and Middle Man (2010), and the irregular typefaces Zapftig (2011), Shock Corridor, Pollo Asado, Middle Woman, Ghost Words, Late Puberty, Parrannoyed (2010, ransom note face), the hairline typeface Rexic (2011), Black Grapes (2012), Chump (2012, hand-printed capitals), Areman OT (2012), and the grungy Skidmarks (2012).

Typefaces from 2013: Salas (a chunky cartoon face), Rabid (a crayon font), Strokin (a great brush face---part charcoal part paint strokes), Bevel Hands, Bunk (a layered beveled type system absed on a monoline fat rounded sans, Bunk Base 2), Spengler (inline face), Vastra (Bauhaus style, organic), Swingers (curly and cartoonish), Chump Change, Treves Sans (crayon face), Quincey (2017).
