Aloha! I’m into all things Hawaiian at the moment. I wanted to put together something that evokes Hawaii so I chose beaches, palms, waves and surf boards! This post is about theme rather than technique but basically I did a “trace bitmap” on a beach scene, waves and surfboards and chose a colour scheme. Surf over to DaFont.com and do a search on Hawaii and you’ll find “Hawaiian Lover” and “Hawaiian Punk” which are the typefaces I used.
Another Hawaiian typeface I like but didn’t use here is called “Hawaiian Aloha BTN”. Check it out. Hang loose and mahalo!
