Here it is, the RawengulkSans Font from Poland based Gluk Fonts. A nice, strong Sans Serif typeface that reminds me off Monotype Imaging Univers (you know, Univers was designed by Adrian Frutiger on Swiss principles for Charles Peignot) or so many other popular typeface that run without fancy serifs slowing them down. Rawengulk would by as ideally suited for body copy as it would fit well as a catchy headline. Download the Opentype Face font.
I guess when I get into a groove I stick with it. Another hand drawn, heavy block typeface of the day. This time around it’s Thunder Thighs from S. John Ross from Cumberland Games & Diversions. This is what he had to say about it: Thunder Thighs is a goofy, friendly sort of font, reminiscent of cartoon logos and the like from the late 1970s. Those kinds of shapes, and the comforting nature of huge amounts of black ink on formerly-blank paper, made this one a particularly enjoyable one to create. I drew it with a 0.8mm Pigma and then blackened it with my trusty Sharpie; the whole process was a kind of reversion to childhood. Same principle as “comfort food,” I suppose – a valuable concept in these troubled times. Thunder Thighs is a full keyboard set with a few essential extras like smartquotes and dashes.

Popcorn and Popcorn Sketch are from Billy Argel, a surf-skate-punk-font designer who has put out some great freeware and commercial typefaces recently. Popcorn is a fun sketchy geometric (reminds me of some Josef Albers designs that used to be popular) – there is a sketch verison and a regular version, the regular one is also pretty sketchy though! These are ‘trial’ versions but it looks like they have full character sets, so check out Popcorn! Download the OTF files!
Another nice legible elegant face that’s been floating around a while with no real trackable origin – from ‘rda_dgsn’ is all i really know. Some people say it looks like Myriad Pro from Adobe a bit too much, but I like it just the same. Download the four styles (bold, bold italic, regular, and italic) that make up GranDesign Neue Serif TTFS. Anyone know any more about where this font came from?
Seven weights of Advent – three thin, three bold, and a good old reliable regular version. From Athens, Greece (not georgia) based designer Andreas Kalpakides (aka IndeGraphics.) What’s Advent like? A nice simple, elegant one – not too far off from Gill Sans maybe, but a bit more interesting. Quirky but not too out-there. More intriguing than Eurostile, but cut from the same cloth. Good to use for text, or even for display. Download Advent family OTFs,
Bohemia is a nice face from a new, young (20 yrs old) type designer based in Ecuador named Juan Casco. Maybe inspired in the Song “She Loves me not” of Papa Roach ….the verse “Life´s not fair”…this angry feeling. Rough, Hand-drawn, scratchy. Full of teen angst, check. Let out those aggressions ..
