This eye-catching font from the foundry Sudtipos combines the elegance of decorative serif fonts with the boldness of a slab font. The typeface looks almost as though it were created using a paintbrush, and the informal tone makes it a great choice for neighborhood events.
- Flyers for barbecues or outdoor parties.
- Local announcements, like the opening of a dog park.
By Dalton Maag
From a distance, Blenny looks like a solid black, heavy typeface, sure to catch viewers’ attention. As they come closer, however, they notice the highly detailed use of white space. The weight of the font pulls people in, and the quirky intricacies of the letters leave them intrigued.
- Garage sale posters.
- Thrift store flyers.
By Craig Frazier, Adobe Originals
Critter is a stylized and decorative font that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Every letter in the alphabet is shaped like an animal — the “S” is a seahorse, the “T” is the face of a tiger, the “F” contains the silhouette of a flamingo, and so on. Although it is an informal and playful font, it still retains readability and adds an interesting element to any design.
- Childrens’ parties.
- Animal-themed library events.
- Family day at the zoo.

Fairwater’s contrasting thick and thin lines give this font a stylish, vintage vibe. The asymmetrical shape of the letters recalls the Art Deco style and conveys a sense of high fashion and glamorous entertainment.
- Upscale vintage clothing sale.
- Movie night in the park.
By Lopetz, P22 Type Foundry
P22 Type Foundry focuses on preserving older fonts with historical relevance, including this Hamilton Wood Type. The typeface is based on a woodcutting that has been revived for digital use. The lack of counter space inside the letters would have made carving easier, and in a digital format gives the font a stark simplicity, reducing each letter to a collection of slightly off-balance geometric shapes.
- Summer computer camp.
- School STEM club.
- Sci-fi night at the library.
By James Edmondson, OH no Type Co.
Simply put, to some the font looks like it has hair all over it. To others, it appears to be crafted from overgrown plant foliage. It’s an outlandish, abstract, ornamental font that seems unlikely to find a place in any kind of design. But if you use it right, Hobeaux Rococeaux can make a big impact, and your poster will not soon be forgotten.
- Residential haircutting or pet grooming service.
- Monster-themed party.
- 1970s- or retro-themed event.
- Flyer for a garden maze.
By Zuzana Licko, Emigre
Two LoRes fonts are contained in this pack: 9 Wide Bold Alt Oakland and 22 OT Serif Bold. These particular variations of the LoRes typeface depict an 8-bit style, and would look at home as the text of an arcade game like Galaga or Tetris. The two LoRes options are sure to generate a feeling of nostalgia for any children of the 80s who see your design.
- Throwback game night.
- School computer club.
By Jason Walcott, Jukebox
This island-inspired font makes up its own typeface rules. It mixes lowercase and uppercase letters within words and changes the shape of some letters based on where they set. There are two versions of the letter “R,” for instance — an “R” at the beginning of the word has a serif at the top left, while an “R” placed anywhere else is serif-free. The typeface is fun and inventive but also easy to read and narrow, so you can use it to convey a lot of information in a small space.
- Neighborhood luau or summer party.
- Visiting speaker.

This bouncy typeface almost appears to move as it crosses the page. The thick asymmetrical lines of the letters give the font a childlike feel. It’s bold enough to catch the eye of passersby but inviting enough to inspire positive reactions.
- Child’s birthday party.
- Kids’ day at a local natural history or science museum.
- Events featuring bounce houses.
By Mark Jamra, TypeCulture
Phoreus is more understated than many of the other fonts in this pack, making it great for companion text. It pairs nicely with the display fonts featured here because it is easy to read but still has its own personality. And here’s a fun fact: this is one of the few typefaces that supports the Cherokee writing system.
- Date, time, location.
- Brief explanatory text under headline.
Like Phoreus Cherokee, Catwing is included in this pack to accompany the wilder display fonts. Its loose freehand style pairs well with KonTiki in particular. Catwing is lighthearted but readable.
- Secondary details on a poster or flyer.
By Rui Abreu
The Signo typeface has several fonts that would work well for display text, but the font included in this pack — Signo Regular — works best for secondary details after the headline has caught your viewer’s eye. It has an almost calligraphic quality that serves as a nice balance to some of the more bizarre fonts included in this pack. Its subtle, upright elegance lends itself well to conveying any other important information on your flyer, poster, or handout.
- Additional details.
- Descriptive language.
