We all love fonts, but we don't all have the dosh to fork out the money to use them legally in our work. Often I find myself in love with design I've made, but can't submit my work with a font I don't have the rights to. After I pout and stamp my feet for a while I usually turn to Divide by Zero.
The Divide by Zero font collection was started in 1993 by Tom Murphy VII (Tom7 to his website followers.) Tom is a musician, author, photographer, artist of every medium, guy with a PHD in computer science, and probably the only random person I've ever made a point to check back on his website every few months to see what new. He is also gracious enough to offer his font collection with only a few even handed limitations on them. He also offers something else you almost never get to know about other fonts, what inspired the font or where he was when he first drew them. Although sometimes the name says it all, as it is with one of my favorites, "This boring party."
So stop reading and go directly to the Divide by Zero website. Be sure to click through to Tom7, although beware, you will be sucked into a world of reading about the prolific amount of projects this gentleman has completed or has on the burner.
Too lazy to click to a whole other website? Download my favorites from the Divide by Zero collection here by clicking the images below.
