Font Mastermind Chank Offers Free Download

itemprop

Attention lovers of fonts and artsy alphabets, and download hoarders: Local artist and font aficionado Chank Diesel (a.k.a. Charles Andermack) has created a new font available for free download.

Over the years, the alphabetician has been creating challenging, experimental, and, quite often, highly readable fonts. While most of these works are for corporate and client use -- his portfolio includes over 300 sets -- he also offers free fonts from time to time.

This year's first free font, Arktika, is a bold series of letters created in collaboration with Scott Rainy. The duo say they took inspiration from 20th-century propaganda posters, geometric structures, and bold headlines. The download, which you can find here, includes both lower- and uppercase letters.
