Font Recommendation
0

Hello,

Wondering what fonts you recommend that are between:

http://www.dafont.com/mandatory.font

AND

http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2471790592/tt1152836

Ideally its not another free font, would like something a little more pro. I really like Mandatory but it only has one weight. Perhaps its built off of (or stolen from) another font?

Thanks Guys,
Peter.

Check out Replica, Lutz Headline and Numberplate from [[http://lineto.com/|Lineto]].

Mandatory is an amateur digitization of the UK car number plate typeface. A cleaner, well-done version is CP Mono by [[Tino Meinert]]. It comes in 5 weights and is, despite its good quality, free as well. See this thread for more license plate type.

Frode already mentioned Lineto. They also have Alpha Headline. It comes in 4 weights, but is available only ‘at the end of 2012’.
Lorenzo Geiger’s Trans-Am is similar.

See also the fonts by Binnenland.ch; Blender, T-Star and Regular, maybe FRAC.
For a more angular direction, check out House United – styles aplenty. Only one weight, but nevertheless 12 styles: Vafle by [[Tomáš Brousil]]
