What is pizzadude.dk all about?
My name is Jakob Fischer, and I am the guy behind pizzadude.dk!
The name “pizzadude” comes from the movie “The ‘burbs” from 1989, starring Tom Hanks. At a point in the movie, the character Ricky Butler (played by Corey Feldman) cries out “But I just called the pizzadude!” – at that time, we all laughed at that, and I instantly knew that I was going to use the name “pizzadude” for something. That something, at first, was when hooking up with friends, playing the game "Quake” (back in the mid 1990-ies) … and as I started making fonts, the name suited me perfect!
The style of pizzadude has always been inspired by graffiti and comics, and has had a loose and goofy appearance.
My fonts have been spotted all over the world and have been used by restaurants, sport clubs, stores and TV shows and have been used for book covers, toys and even tattoos!
On a daily basis I am working full time as a kindergarten teacher. I teach kids aged 3-6 years, and I absolutely love it. Actually, they are a great influence on my work, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! Hopefully the kids benefit from my quirky fantasy and imagination!
Thanks for listening to me, now go browsing some fonts! 🙂
