Is there a name for this style of typeface? I see it a lot lately in magazines like idn. I'm wondering where I can get it aside from some of the shareware ones I see that have a few problems.
Ladies and gentlemen,
may we present,
all new in 2007,
it's the Fat Font Fad!
An '80s throwback, counter-filled, constructivist, geometric, sausage revue, starring:
Black Boton Bold
Alpha Bloc Sculpture
Bebit (Cyrillic version of Milton Glaser's Baby Teeth)
Rody and Lazar
Fatti Patti (lame version of Baby Teeth)
Non-Format created a bunch of these for their design work.
Soft and Round
Wouldn't that be considered early russian constructivist style type?
Looks very similar to a P22 typeface. P22 Constructivist Block
Nice list, Stephen!
FS Pele is not free; it's £125.00 for the family.
I'd add these, although some are not as FAT as those previously listed:
Antique Olive Nord aka Incised 901
Gator (Canada Type)
Gill Sans Ultra Black
Gothic 821 aka Block Berthold Condensed
Rosemary (Chank Diesel)
Univers Extra Black
Thanks for the addition and correction, boys.
Thanks for the great responses!
Psyops has Phalanx on Steroids
(I love Psyops)
The Geist KNT & Geist RND are two good fat Fonts
