We used to run the Friday Free Fonts sequence of posts previously however discovering free fonts should not that straightforward. We perceive the extent of labor essential to design a font and good work isn’t at all times free. So as we speak I need to function the Frontage Condensed Typeface designed by Juri Zaech, a Swiss Art Director, presently residing and dealing in Paris, France.
Frontage Condensed is a layered sort system impressed by eye-catching and colourful facade signage. Its predominant side is — like many typographic installations on storefronts — three dimensional. The slim, generously spaced letterforms lend the typeface a daring and eminent voice. The extra decorative layers like Bulb or Neon convey nostalgia to the household, whereas the Shadow layer maximizes the spacial impression.
The system’s ten layers can be utilized alone or mixed making the household a flexible toolkit. The use of colour reveals Frontage Condensed’s full potential, but for stark functions it really works nice in black and white too. Check the specimen PDF for examples.
Frontage Condensed options 52 catchwords. They could be merely activated by OpenType’s Discretionary Ligatures and are a straightforward strategy to enrich the typographic texture. Other options embrace fractions, numerators and denominators. Frontage Condensed’s 339-character set covers over 190 latin languages.
