Skute

Youworkforthem have released a free version of their handset Skute Pro font, that’s crying out to be used on a record cover (such as they are these days).

A.M. Cassandre produced the typeface Bifur for Peignot in 1929. Bifur broke from rigid typographic forms by combining Art Deco principles of obsessive geometry with the line and stroke of letter forms. Skute picks up Cassandre’s spirit and carries it onward in YWFT hand set fashion. And we are happy to give it out to you. Yep, that’s right, we’re giving Skute to you for your own personal use! Should you need to use Skute for a commercial project or want more letters, buy the enhanced Pro version, Skute Pro.


Hill House - a free font from Hicksdesign

27 Jan 2005

Hill House is a typeface based on the distinctive handwriting of Glasgow architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). The Hill House is a building originally designed for the publisher Walter Blackie, and is now in the care of The National Trust for Scotland. Now that the copyright on his handwriting style is in the public domain, this typeface is seen everywhere in Glasgow, from jewellers to chip shops! For more information on Mackintosh visit the CRM Society.

I made this font over 10 years ago, but it’s still popular due to it’s suitability for wedding invitations! The font features special glyphs for the words ‘to’, ‘at’ and ‘of’, and contains Mac, PC and Opentype formats. Hill House isn’t foundry quality, but it is free free to use in every way, including embedding with Cufon or with @font-face.
