Twenty Dee Bee .. 20DB .. a nice retro-flavored OTF type face from Russian designer Jovanny Lemonad (Ivan Gladkikh). Sort of Art Deco, 20DB is legible and ideal for headlines, titles, display use (i can see it working nicely on posters). It feels a little like Monotypes Broadway typeface, but a little less frilly and deco-ish, a bit more angled and “russian” feeling to me! (does that make sense?) Download 20db OTF and give it a whirl.
Freeway Gothic, a very legible free font from American freeware type designer Tom Oetken. It’s Nice, thick, heavy and bold. It sort of captures the spirit of Font Bureau’s Interstate Bold but is a little more extended with a slightly less polished appeal (to me, that is a good thing – i appreciate a font that isn’t too polished). Maybe this face would work great on a highway sign, or any sign that someone needs to read while speeding past. zoom. zoom. Download Freeway Gothic truetype font file.
