1- Hetilica Bold
Hetilica Bold is a typeface developed as a final project for my 2009 workshop class in college.
It is based on the hand-written license signs used across some of the alcohol selling shops in the province of Cartagena, Chile; a small beach-side town of small population.
After a trip to the area, several pictures were taken to decide the fonts to develop based on just a few glyphs found.
2- Cube 02
Cube 02 is applicable for any type of graphic design – web, print, motion graphics etc and perfect for t-shirts and other items like logos, pictograms.
Ultra’s beauty lies in its boldness. This decorative Western font with elegant serifs has a sharp and inviting presence, especially in the subtleties of the “J,” “7” and “f.” The font has an extended European character set and is available as a free download in TrueType format. Licensed under the Apache License version 2.
Banda is a semi-serif typeface characterized by a tall x-height and rounded semi-serifs. Although it was first designed as a display typeface Banda quickly evolved into more complex type consisting of 7 weights plus their respectful italics.
5- Dancing Script
Dancing Script is a lively, casual script whose letters bounce and change in size slightly. The font references popular typefaces from the ’50s. It recalls Murray Hill (by Emil Klumpp, 1956) in its weight distribution and Mistral (by Roger Excoffon, 1953) in its bouncing effect. Dancing Script could be handy if you are looking for a casual, friendly, informal and spontaneous typeface, and it’s a pretty good replacement for Comic Sans, too! Also available as a Web font.
6- Layer Cake
An experimental typeface, designed by Jakob Nylund. Isometric multiple layered type. Capital letters A-Z, available only in Illustrator AI format.
Molot is very popular font for web designers.
8- Quattrocento Roman
Quattrocento Roman is a classic, elegant and strong typeface that perhaps lacks some maturity in certain details (the “g” and “e,” for example, do not quite seem to fit together). The typeface has wide and open letterforms, and the good x-height makes body text legible even at small sizes. As a classic Roman typeface, Quattrocento is a good choice for big bold headlines. Fontlab source files are included in the download package. Available as a Web font, Quattrocento Sans is a free download as well.
9- LITTLE LINE
LITTLE LINE is very popular font for web designers.
Practice Foundry is an independent foundry that releases fonts under a pay-what-you-want license. The sans-serif font was intended to be the most legible typeface for mobile screens. Its details are drawn from the more systematic constructed Neo-Grotesques, giving it a neutral tone of voice. Although Fabrica was developed primarily for mobile screens, the typeface is suitable to any application, big or small. The font is available in OpenType format for Mac and PC.
The font gives a fluidity to reading by a consistent x-height. The shoulder is made slightly broader then the curved foot. Assender is made shorter in order to buffer the contrast made by thick and thin strokes.
MISO is an architectural lettering font completed in 2006 by Mårten Nettelbladt. It’s available in three weights (light, regular, bold) in TrueType format for Windows.

Cabin is a humanist sans serif inspired by Edward Johnston and Eric Gill’s typefaces, with a touch of modernism. Cabin incorporates modern proportions, optical adjustments and some elements of the geometric sans. As the designer puts it, “It remains true to its roots, but has its own personality.” An excellent typeface for body copy and headings on small and large screens. Four font weights are available, with corresponding italic styles.

The font contains 151 glyphs, including Latin and Cyrillic alphabets, numerals and some special characters.
28- ARS Novelty
This typeface is a result of the unconventional approach of Angus R. Shamal. The designer has come up with a fun and by no means less-than-functional experiment in hybrid styles and historical influences, joining the baroque serif with the geometric sans, the formal with the decorative flourish. ARS Novelty is apparently a typeface that tries to make sense of it all. A single weight is available, with stylistic alternates, numerals, standard ligatures and discretionary ligatures, case-sensitive forms, ordinals and localized forms. In OpenType format.
29- Legion Slab
Legion Slab is a condensed slab-serif typeface designed by Phil Pham. The body copy set in Legion Slab is quite difficult to read because some letters were designed to be asymmetric, giving the typeface an original, perhaps “broken” appearance. However, Legion Slab could be a great fit for headings and product designs. In TrueType format; only a regular weight is available.

The typeface contains English and Cyrillic letters and is available in OpenType and True Type formats. Note that in both formats, the small “j” doesn’t work properly. We have contacted the designer about the issue, and hopefully the font will be updated soon.
A bold yet versatile font that is based on classic proportions and chunky letter forms. The sharp, precise lettering makes it an interesting choice for signage, book jackets, packaging, posters and t-shirts. The small family includes an extended European character set.
