Prime free font (2 Styles OTF)

Prime is a simple typeface with a techy feel and a strict, geometric origin. I wanted to create something that offers great readability in various sizes yet still offers enough subtle differences to stand out. Basic and somewhat neutral, it can be used in a variety of ways from distinct titles to body text.

FV Deventer

This is a one of a kind font, based on the typography jewel smiths used to braze onto filigree over a century ago. It has graceful curves yet rough edges. The name of the font is a reference to the place of the biggest book fair in Europe: Deventer. That’s where I found the antique book containing an example of this font. You can download/buy the font based on a ‘Pay-What-You-Want’ system.

Coolvetica Regular (1 Style OTF)

Coolvetica is a scratch built, sans serif font, based on an American chain store logos circa 1970. This was an era where everyone was modifying Helvetica. Not only for logo designs but even font designers were at it. Coolvetica recreates that 1970s custom display lettering look with really tight kerning and funky curls. Coolvetica is a pure display font, intended for big, funky headings and titles.

Lora (4 Styles TTF)

Lora is a well-balanced contemporary serif with roots in calligraphy. It is a text typeface with moderate contrast well suited for body text. A paragraph set in Lora will make a memorable appearance because of its brushed curves in contrast with driving serifs. The overall typographic voice of Lora perfectly conveys the mood of a modern-day story, or an art essay.

Wire One (1 Style TTF)

Wire is a condensed monoline sans. Its modular-based characters are flavored with a sense of art nouveau. Nearly hairline thickness suggests usage for body text above 12px. While at display sizes it reveals its tiny dot terminals to create a sharp mood in headlines.

Pakenham Regular (1 Style OTF)

Pakenham was inspired by Paul Renner’s 1950s creation, Steile Futura. This sans serif font has an upright, modern look with gently turned corners and generously proportioned loops. The overall appearance is squarish and quite compact but friendly. Only the regular version is for free download.

Cinzel (6 Styles OTF)

Cinzel is a typeface inspired in first century roman inscriptions, and based on classical proportions. However it’s not a simple revivalism. While it conveys all the ancient history of the latin alphabet it also merges a contemporary feel onto it.
