We met Jake Stormoen through the most fortunate, random happenstance. From the start he became one of our favorite people. He might be the most genuine, down-to-earth person we've met, and we knew right away that we wanted to find a way to work with him.
We couldn't have been more surprised and humbled to have him approach us about a collaboration first! His timing was perfect, as we had just finished up one project and were ready to start something new. The stars were aligned and we were already on board, but Jake had one more gift for us. He explained that not only did he want metal dice, but that he wanted them to be truly unique. These words are precisely what the artificers and alchemists of Castle Die Hard like to hear...
When Jake returned to the United States from filming season 2 of The Outpost, we sat down for multiple meetings to craft what would become the Storm Forged - Unearthed line of dice. We created a font from scratch, added a stylized border, a unique six and nine indicator, and Jake's Storm Forged logo on the twenty face.
The Storm Forged font was created from scratch to have the feel of arcane runes, lost to time. We agonized over every curve, every notch, and every hook. It features a unique cutout at the bottom of the nine and six as an orientation marker. We could not be more proud of what Jake and our team created.
The Storm Forged Logo features the head of a dragon that is inspired by the figureheads of Norse ships as a nod to Jake's heritage. The logo has the flow of an S and F, for Storm Forged. The logo went through numerous iterations as we adjusted for both readability and style.
We invite you to explore Unearthed, the first line of dice under the Storm Forged brand by Jake Stormoen and Die Hard Dice.
