In another free font exclusive on Noupe, we present Rubber Font, a neat display font created by Yiorgos Yiacos. Rubber Font is a working but limited version containing roman capitals, numerals and some of the points of punctuation. Rubber Font is available as a free download for personal use only below.
My name is Yiorgos Yiacos. I’m an illustrator and graphic designer. I’m 31 years old. I live and work in Athens, Greece. I am also quite a nice guy, when you get to know me.
I am a co-founder and former member of the PoorDesigners creative studio in Athens. At the present I work as an Art Director at Cream Advertising company in Athens, Greece and also freelance under the alias TwelveTimesTwo.
About the Font
The font started as the solution to a problem. It was for a poster that needed all letters perfectly aligned in both horizontal and vertical axis. The poster got rejected but the few letters I designed then, evolved to a full font which I named rubber as for me it is as flexible as this material.
All capitals except (i) have the same dimensions and work best when all spaces between letters (horizontally & vertically) are equal. I recommend 31pt line width when using the font at 72pt. The values should be changed proportionally.
This sample version contains only Roman capitals, numerals and some of the points of punctuation. I have already designed the full version which I intend to later make available for sale. It contains lower case (naturally), but also the Greek and Cyrillic alphabets, full punctuation, ligatures, etc.
