It’s Block Block Blockography, it’s a freeware font (not for commercial use, you know.) Created in 2011 by Måns Grebäck – a great typeface designer and logo artist (from Sweden?) – Blockography is a nice, fun, sketchy bit of fontery with slabby fun block serifs. A bit kiddish maybe, a bit fun, but pretty catchy on a poster perhaps, or something where you want a casual take on a blocky slab face. Download the TTF.
KINKY is a personal lettering project from French designer (now based in Oslo) Fabrice Bats a 5ive – it’s a nice, chucky straight angled and kinda choppy looking font, great for headlines and such – not body copy (no, it isnt 3D) – “NOTE: It’s not a real type, I mean… not like a Georgia, Helvetica… with great kerning, terrific, good options…This lettering is just thought for graphic element uses. (Not for long text). Yes, it’s not perfect, I know, but I like it anyway. And after some demands I just wanted to convert it in .ttf, to use it more easily instead of using Illustrator, in a “letter by letter” process…” Download Kinky TTF beta2.
The Takraf font family is based on the old logotype from the VEB Schwermaschienenbaukombinat (DDR) and comes to us from Jan Sonntag at Sonntag Fonts in Laroque, France. This face is pretty unique in that it is supplied in four style that are very distinct – Takraf 3d (letterforms on 3d cubes), Takraf-Block (letterforms with dark shadows), Takraf-Linie (letterforms with shadow that is not filled in), anmd Takraf-VEB (letters are knocked out of solid, flat boxes). A solid choice for headlines, drop-caps, logo designs and anything that needs a firm blocky base. WIth its unique hard angular style this could fall into a more modern “dutch” type design category.

LCD Phone, from Raul Andres Perez Canseco at Dibujos en Linea is a simple face composed of blocks that resemble a liquid crystal display, sort of like on an old alarm clock or maybe a phone. There are more complex LCD style faces out there, but this one keeps it nice and clean. Download LCD Phone TTF.
yes, another digital-blippy pixel font. I guess that there is a soft spot in my heart for these. I like it, here it is. OK? This time it’s e-brain 2.0 (a PUNKROCKTYPOGRAPHY.typeface) from Ohio based William Clifford, a real chunky nice blocky one that comes as bold angular outlines. Fancy making some techno CD cover artwork? this is it for you my friend. Download e-Brain 2.0 TTF font.
DIRTY HEADLINE – A TrueType Font from Austin, TX based game and font designer S. John Ross (a one-man band punching out warm hand-drawn fonts, funky stress-fonts, and oddball fonts) from Cumberland Games & Diversions. What would you expect from a font called Dirty Head? It’s bold, its nice and dirty, full of grunge and ruggedness. Great for headlines that need to be less than clean. Download Dirty Headline TTF.
