Canter’s Deli font comes full circle.
Graphic designer makes actual typeface family out of casual script seen on sign for classic L.A. deli, Canter’s. (Wins award!
) Youngest, hippest member of the family that owns the diner later independently Googles "Canter's Deli" + font
, locates type designer, then hires him to custom-design a Canter’s “gourmet food truck.” “[W]hat was interesting to me was that this whole scenario could not have happened without the magic of the Internet and search engines.”
