Simulata Typeface in TTF and OTF
by Gary Bouton (Gare online)
A lot of explanation isn’t necessary with this month’s Giveaway: it’s a typeface! Specifically:
- It’s a headline-style typeface. If you use it at 12 point for body text, a reader will surely shorten your lifespan by no less than 10 years.
- It’s decorative, but a little brash and definitely stylish and underused in the print world. Use it for store signs (as shown above), for menu headlines at restaurants none of us could afford, use one one character and make a logo out of it with additional shapes and creativity of your own.
- Because Bouton was so darned thoughtful and made a TTF version in addition to OTF (which is a much better font format), you can use this font in Xara 3D Maker and animate it like Bouton did on the front page!
