TYPOGRAPHY UNRESTRAINED ✖ »Unapologetic Outing as a Nerd« (for widescreen displays)

Wallpaper 1920x1200.


Typefaces in use:


Roland Hörmann’s (PHOSPHO) distressed, grungy blackletter typeface »Adhesive Nr. Seven«.


Adhesive Nr. Seven is a sticky blackletter font owes its street credibility to the texture of torn adhesive tape. Designed to support rehabilitation of the historically tainted Fraktur, its pragmatically shaped majuscules guarantee legibility to a 21st-century readership. They even forgive all-caps usage - a thing you better not try with most blackletter types around. It contains a range of diacritics and ligatures, as well as open type features that substitute alternate glyphs for often repeating characters. With its fine tape strip details you may best use it at poster and headline sizes; at small sizes you interestingly get a nice woodcut appearance.


Pedro Leal’s (DSType) elegant, fancyful script face »Penna«.


Penna is a calligraphic type system designed by Pedro Leal. Amidst the four available styles you get four different ascender and descender styles, two different styles of starting and ending swashes, pleura of ligatures and several other features. Chose between regular, swashes, unconnected and connected versions or mix them all up for a deeper calligraphic feeling.


Steve Mehallo’s great, messy typewriter face »Chandler 42«.


»Chandler 42« was one of the first messy typewriter fonts to hit the market, Chandler 42 was compiled with forensic care from the voluminous output of a circa 1942 portable. All the eccentric personality of this particular machine is intact: a slightly angled “m,” filled in gaps in the most-used characters; even the number “4” is reminiscent of gasoline pump numbers of its day.


Ray Larabie’s (TYPODERMIC) punk, spraypaint, stencilled typeface »Burnaby Stencil«.


Burnaby Stencil is oversprayed, a bit crooked and 100% dirty.
