Free Font of the Week: Romeral

Advertisement

Free high-quality fonts are extremely hard to find1, but sometimes the time you’ve invested in the search is definitely worth the result you’ve got. A new freefont, designed by Juan Pablo De Gregorio, should belong to the collection of every professional web-designer: aside from optimal legibility, Romeral2 offers elegant style, rounded forms and clear geometric structure of its letters.

Romeral3

Romeral4

“Romeral is designed to produce a noticeable visual impact that invites the audience to the reading due to its sizable thickness. Interestingly enough, the basic idea was to find a way to fill the color titles zone in order to create a comfortable atmosphere for the reading experience.

Romeral’s straight geometric form allows an amateur designer to modify its points without much difficulty. The idea is to be able to easily design a personalized layout of the text.”

Due to its serious tone, Romeral can be used for both body copy and headlines. Particularly in serious online-presentations it can be used to emphasize some accents of the page content.

The open-type font can be used without any restrictions in personal and commercial projects. You can get the font sending a personal request via e-mail or leaving a comment form here5.

    “Due to its serious tone” – I would say it looks like a light-hearted ‘fun’ font to me. Look at the “R” and the “e”. The second example (which is superb!) could be for a cereal packet.

    Very good font.
    I think it’s good to personal websites, using clean styles of shapes and colors.

    Really strong font. I like it because it looks really modern (historical sense). Great idea!

    Has anyone gotten a response from the designer? I wrote to him at the beginning of January about one of his other by-request fonts and never got an answer. It’s too bad, because they’re all quite nice!

    I need Roman OTF or Times Roman OTF or both in any form and description. I am trying to work on a diagram in Adobe InDesign and when importing a diagram which was done in Times New Roman, the actual picture corrupts as Adobe InDesign 2.0 only has Times New Roman PS MT which I can’t use. Can you tell me where I can obtain free Times New Roman, Times Roman, just Times fonts please?
    Kind regards
