Airbag font with a free version to download, yes this font has a free version. Airbag is a slab serif typeface that aims to give a modern, clean and crisp look and feel. It’s the first font I created, so it was a steep learning curve on my part (see my other fonts). To be honest with you I might be doing things wrong. You might have to tweak the leading and the kerning. Airbag has only one weight but does have uppercase and lowercase letters with over 256 glyphs (for the paid version). The free version only has uppercase letters and numbers.
Not your traditional modular typeface. Sullivan is a bold display face that comes in three variations. Each can be used effectively on their own or layered for a uniquely modern, industrial effect. Originally inspired by the letter “S” design by Scott Allen Hill of Foundry Collective.

A font inspired by some college and university t-shirts. Ideal for creating logos and emblems. The dollar key holds an alternate glyph for the letter ‘s’. The left and right curly brackets hold alternate glyphs for numbers ‘2’ and ‘5’.
Qalto flows and leaps like freestyle jazz. Suited as a strong title or headline font, the letters and ligatures are composed of very thin hairlines and very thick elements. This high contrast conveys a stunning visual effect and a unique optical rhythm. Early on, Aron Jancso realized that “some words have good rhythm and others don’t,” and added stylistic alternatives for every lowercase and uppercase letter. If that’s not enough, there are four different weights, so users can use different sizes with the same hairline thickness, which allows for artistic freedom in arrangement and composition.
