Circus Freak font chromatic typeface

by itsmesimon in Fonts / Slab Serif


Circus freak was partly inspired by the old American chromatic wood type from the late 1800's, and my desire to create a chromatic typeface.

It has four styles that can be layered one on top of the other to get a chromatic colour effect reminiscent of vintage letterpress printing.

The four styles include

  • Circus freak Regular
  • Circus freak Lines
  • Circus freak shadow
  • Circus freak shadow stroke

You can also add an inner or an outer stroke to any of the layers to get even more effects.

Free textures included

In fact, I created 4 letterpress textures to be used with the typeface. You can see a demo

It's old style western sensibility and thick slab serifs will add a dramatic period look to any design project.

It includes language support for eastern, central and western European countries, in total it has 345 glyphs.

The font includes

  • Uppercase characters only
  • Numbers and punctuation
  • Symbols
  • Support for Eastern, Central and Western European languages
  • 4 Different styles
  • 4 Letterpress high-resolution textures

If this font was a celebrity it would be more Ronald Reagan than Donald Trump. Although Trump is scary—and creepy.

If you have any questions just ask.
