How The Joker Movie Logo Was Made
The logo for the 2019 film Joker was created using wood type letterpress by designer Chad Danieley. Danieley used the letterpress to create a sample sheet of the typeface, which he then scanned and cataloged. He felt that the physical process of creating the logo with the wood type helped him perceive space in a different way and added a level of texture and realism to the design that a digitally created version would not have had. After the logo was selected, Danieley and the team at Elastic tried to recreate it digitally, but ultimately decided to use the original letterpress version because it had a unique, structurally warped quality that couldn’t be replicated digitally. Danieley’s background includes studying graphic design and interning with graphic designer Pablo Ferro, as well as working as a freelancer and at NBC’s on-air department.
So, what font was used in the Joker movie logo?
In the Chad Danieley interview, he mentions an “unamed” Gothic font. However, he created a unique logo design inspired by the film. However, a similar font was designed and named “Gothic Joker“. The Gothic Joker font was designed by KELGE Fonts in 2019—the same year, but after the movie was released. It’s also known as a fan-made font.
Gothic Joker is a bold sans-serif typeface suitable for headlines, logos, branding, and labels with a retro edge. The font is available for download and can be used on most devices, including PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android. However, you can only use the font for personal purposes.
