Free Font of the Week: Romeral

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.

“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.

    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 also wrote and never recieved one. This post should be updated that you can not actually get the font, You have to leave your email or write him and then hope you get it. So far I have not heard of anyone getting it.
