Font Recommendation

markatos's picture

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 Lineto.

Only one weight, but several styles.

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
