This is a collection of open source fonts that I have been working on recently. All are licensed under the SIL Open Font License (OFL), which means they are free to use (in print and electronically), redistribute, and even modify.

News Cycle

latest release: v 0.2, April 21, 2011

News Cycle is a realist sans-serif typeface based on specimens from ATF's 1908 News Gothic. The goal is to produce a practical, easy-to-read font suitable for journalistic use at multiple weights. News Cycle is currently available in regular weight, covering Unicode Latin-1, Latin Extended A and Latin Extended B.

Technical mumbo-jumbo:


Click here for the newest readymade, installable package. Drop the .TTF file in your MyFonts directory on Windows, ~/.fonts on Linux, or /Lib/Fonts on OS X. OS/2 users: good luck....


Click to follow this news feed to get updates whenever there's a thrilling new development. It originates from my work blog, which otherwise does not interest you in the least.


Help further the development of this font by sending the project an old-fashioned Flattr this pittance. Just five measly bucks (US) draws a shiny new glyph, though every little bit helps.


You can also help support this project *and* make your friends envious by purchasing a rare & stylish Glyphography t-shirt. Who knew promoting open source could look so good?
