Anodyne: 6 Distressed, All-Caps Fonts from Yellow Design Studio - only 9$!

Anodyne is a warm and weathered all-caps font with hand-printed texture and unique shadow options. Features include four distress variations for each letter and at least two for every other character. Double-letter ligatures add realism by eliminating identical texture in adjacent characters.

Layering regular and shadow versions allows independent control of the shadow color. Switch between lower-case and capital letters to change texture, or use opentype contextual alternates for additional, extra-distressed variations. Anodyne has an extended character set for multiple language support.

Yellow Design Studio’s Gist Font Family - only 14$!

Another masterpiece from Yellow Design Studio, Gist is an inline slab serif that features a retro yet modern vibe. It’s a collision between monoline slab and indie script. With 627 glyphs per weight, it’s highly customizable…either keep it simple with the base character set or use ligatures, alternates and swashes for extra flair. All-caps typesettings have an especially retro edge. Line layers are included for adding color to the inline areas. 

If you own the Gist font family (or you’re planning to) here are some tips: 

  • In Photoshop try different ‘anti-aliasing’ settings for best results. 
  • In Illustrator if the line layers don’t align with the normal layers, change the “First Baseline” setting in the Area Type Options to “Leading”. 
  • Works best with opentype savvy application, especially those with a glyphs palette like InDesign, Illustrator and Quark. All glyphs can also be accessed in any layout software by using the application “PopChar” by Ergonis.
