Half sharing this here because it's cool, half sharing because I had a split moment of panic where I realized I couldn't remember the name of this site x_x

The VTF (Velvetyne Type Foundry) is a distributor of free and open-source typefaces. They've been kicking since 2010, but I only stumbled upon their site perhaps a year or two ago.



Lots of really cool and unique fonts to look through and get inspiration from. Many modern typography sites seem to rehash the same popular styles over and over, so it is a nice breath of fresh air to see such an interesting collection of typefaces. I admire that one of their bullet points on their about page reads "We want to turn Velvetyne into a snazzy playground for type projects that may present a low commercial appeal but that possess an highly poetic, aesthetic or technical value. We wish to encourage and cultivate these contemporary creations at the margins of the mainstream type scene." I think that says a lot about what you can expect to find browsing the site.

That said, if anyone knows any other websites or collectives similar to this, I'd love to hear it.

This is cool, I think Iv been here before too but I totally forgot about it :omg:k: I like that the 404 page gives you access to a secret download. I don't follow many font sites but I do use a lot of free fonts from this guy on my sites https://backpacker.gr/fonts/ (scroll down to the bottom for the free ones)

VTF is so awesome! I found it a few weeks ago while surfing through Neocities sites. Can't find the site now but... thanks whoever that was!

I am using their Compagnon font for a project of mine, it's so pretty, and I also like Basteleur, it looks sixties-ish

But really I must say, I adore the crispiness of your screenshot. It is very aesthetically pleasing :grin:
