Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club is a typeface inspired by the capital letters on the bass drum in the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper album cover. The original lettering was hand painted by fairground artist Joe Ephgrave during March 1967 in an art deco style he called ‘futuristic’. The font completes the uppercase, adds a lowercase, and includes a full complement of over 400 characters. Sgt Peppers Outline and Sgt Peppers Outline Fill are two fonts with matching spacing and kerning that can be overlapped for creating bicolor/multicolor effects and faux drums. The Outline and Outline Fill fonts do not contain lowercase characters, instead they comprise two weights of capitals as painted on the Sgt Pepper drum. The uppercase letters are in the wider style from around the outer edge of the drum, and the lowercase keys deliver the more condensed ‘Lonely Hearts’ inline style from the middle of the drum.

One of the ideas hatched was Occupy Design, a new website that gives a "visual language" to protesters across the country. Jake Levitas, a designer from San Francisco who's heading up the project, says it's a chance to fight back at media who characterize the movement as directionless. "These are people who have valid concerns grounded in reality and grounded in data that can be communicated visually," Levitas says. "If we get these signs on CNN instead of the ones that say 'Screw capitalism' on a piece of cardboard," viewers don't see a generic grievance but "exactly how people are being screwed and by how much.
