A typeface inspired by the Queen City

I have posted a couple of times now about typeface, including Sweden’s national font and financial considerations of font choice.

A couple of weeks ago, a colleague emailed me an article published by Charlotte Agenda that announced that Charlotte now has its own typeface. The title is a bit misleading because the typeface’s only tie to Charlotte is inspiration. Regardless, it is neat to see Uptown Sans, a typeface that took the better part of a year to create. I definitely dig its name, and I like the typeface itself. My one reservation would be the all caps style which certainly limits its use. How do other Charlotteans feel? Do you like the typeface, and in what settings would you use Uptown Sans?
