What is the Uppercut Angle font?

Joachim Müller-Lancé’s Uppercut is a rather sporting fellow, originally developed for the Krav Maga training center of San Francisco (Krav Maga is a simple and efficient self-defense system that has become equally popular in Hollywood and with law enforcement). Joachim has spent several years training, hitting things and people whenever he needs a break from kerning. Uppercut can be seen on the school’s t-shirts and other articles.
Despite bearing the same moniker as an upwards punch to the chin, the name actually fell together quite naturally as Uppercut is an all uppercase typeface, and the word “cut” is also historically used to describe a type style in hot metal type. For this slanted look, “Angle” felt just right (with thanks to Mia McHatton). More…
The design idea sprang from pencil sketches for the center’s new identity. Uppercut’s shapes are not calligraphic or handwritten, more like lettering seen in comics or sports logos. Its brush movements are imaginary, not too literally brushy. During development, details were simplified and reduced until a bit of a cut-paper feel emerged, but more fluid like writing. The shapes are economical and efficient; simplicity makes the font versatile, holding up in small as well as big sizes.
Uppercut is decidedly analog, muscular but not bulky, with the fluid but determined movements of a boxer or martial artist – not theatrical but powerful, fast, confident and dynamic. Well… it has punch. In the proportions, there is emphasis on a strong upper edge “keeping its guard up”, while several stems protrude downward, giving the impression of leaping or being “light on the feet”.
Use Uppercut to pick up the pace, add snap, verve and drive – on movie posters for action and adventure, to advertise your dojo, rumble or prizefight, racing team or tuning shop, or invite friends to your barbecue with old time rock’n’roll and homemade hot pepper sauce.
