Neue

I need a FREE font, that is VERY SIMILAR to the font used in iOS Headers. As far as I know, this is Helvetica Neue, but I can't use the free webfont version as I need to be able to distribute it... this is for a free page heme for tumblr, so no profit is made from this.

After almost seven years of putting it off the time has finally come to assemble a portfolio and stationary etc. Over the last few months I've been looking at a number of typefaces to use for 'branding' myself so to speak and have almost certainly settled on Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed Light and Regular.

The things I love –

  • The vertical sides to the C, D, G, O and Q characters.
  • It's subtly square–ish appearance (for example the bowl on the P and R characters).
  • The straight diagonal leg of the R character.
  • It's history and heritage.
  • I love condensed fonts.
  • It is very utilitarian and simple.
    • The things I do not love –
