The scribbles for the font were made with japanese ink on simple office paper. I designed this font because I often searched for some glyphs with this special "Arabic/Pirate"-style that doesn't look too cheesy. I didn't find much, so I decided to design the font by myself. I used some Japanese inkstick and an old Edding calligraphy pen as brush to get this special look.

Free font: »Anilin« – How many anchors can you handle?
It's quite interesting that all tutorials of font design advise you to keep the number of anchors of each glyph so small as possible. Although I absolutely understand why this advise is given (e.g. because of cutting limitations) I just tried what happens, when you "overload" a font with anchors.
To be honest: Nothing. Nothing really mentionable happens. Most of the desktop publishing software can handle the font quite well. The font (its name is "Anilin" is roughly based on my own handwriting. I did the first sketches with a broken pencil and I liked the look.

Free font: »Amboss« – The font for the hard dudes
This was my very first font. Back then I created the family using FontLab. Actually this font is definitely not my best work, but I think it's important to remember the roots.
Actually I use this font from time to time. Its aesthetics are quite heavy, strong and, yeah, manly. It has a quite rough character mixed with a very constructed look. It is perfect for headlines, heavy metal band logos and typography on trucks.
The font is absolutely free: Use it in every kind of project you can imagine. Make something awesome!!!
