Erial- free typeface by Kolcsár Sz. Zsolt

DT&G News and views for graphic designers

Erial typeface is one of the mechanically drawn fonts that tends to defy the craft, while looking pretty darn good. It is a modern sans serif font (TrueType Font) so it's called -- but seems to contradict that calling. Erial can always be use in a wide range of project; it looks marvelous as logotype, looks well as body type, perfect for poster design, apparel and so much more!
