David Occhino Design creates typefaces of all kinds.
A proprietary design created exclusively for Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, Schulz is the definitive Charles Schulz typeface. Created from original cartoon strips by the late author of the Peanuts™ comic strip, the Schulz font was created by artist David Occhino to be an authentic re-creation of the famous lettering. The font software includes OpenType contextual alternates, which simulate a hand-written look through the use of many alternate glyphs for each letter.
This typeface design was created for the University of Rochester. This elegant stonecut lettering was designed for use for the creation of architectural elements as well as typesetting. Inspired by the Roman inscriptional lettering found on buildings on the University of Rochester campus, this design was used for stone-carved signage for the Raymond F. LeChase building, which houses the Warner School of Education.
Artist David Occhino created Dark Owl, an exclusive font design for singer and songwriter Olivia Sebastianelli. The design combines "Gothic rose" script influences, an owl-inspired motif and a retro 1970s look, all of which were important part of Olivia's brand identity. All glyphs were hand-lettered, created in the brush stroke style.
