“Birth of a Hero” is the name of a font, by Last Soundtrack, that I’ve seen a lot in graphic design over the past year or so. It’s a nice kinda modern looking distressed style font, which is so very popular in graphic design nowadays (I’m guilty too).
See the four examples below, where two are from Proper Bike Co’s packaging. I know that three examples hardly justifies the term over-used, but I’m sure I’ve seen it in a bunch of other BMX related media and design. It’s just that I’m really shit at remembering little things like that.
PS. Birth of a Hero a free font and can be downloaded from dafont.com, where you can also check out the other fonts by the guy responsible for giving birth to the hero.
[Edit: Found another example here.]
