I put this together using a FREE image from Unsplash.com and Pixelmator Pro.

(The green reminds of my younger days when I smoked. This is NOT my intention at all in this novella-in-flash fiction piece.)
Could you try and do the first one again, but with a black background instead of the horrible blurry green, and then white text? Also, why are there three names on the front?

I like the crayons, I think it is a great asset. And I think it would 'pop' nicely on a black background.

I downloaded Hank BT and I do like the look of it. I replaced the earlier font with the Hank font, but for some reason I can't get it to boldface using Pixelmator Pro. Also, it's just a bit too thin compared to its replacement. This is the reason I attempted to boldface it - without success.

I'll try some of the other fonts you recommended and do a comparison.
I'm unsure that a Hank bold actually exists, so yes, you would likely need to invent it, or create it, for lack of a better term. If I had it, I'd aid you but as I said, methinks it doesn't exist.

LifeSavers Bold is similar, although not the same. That does have an ExtraBold face, too. Granted, it's not like Helvetica bold, but...

Offered FWIW. (P.S. I am also fond of Two Fingers Bodoni, but again, AFAIK, that comes in a single weight. I used that in a lovely, lovely kids book and it worked well.)
