Matchbook Typefaces

September 2009

Matchbook is a simple and functional set of two typefaces we designed in a serif and sans-serif version. Each set includes all accented characters and works beautifully in larger scales.


Both are available for download in true type format:

Matchbook
Matchbook Serif

Do you love this font? Leave the designer a tip to show him some appreciation for all his hard work!

They’re so beautiful and simple! I love them!

April 13, 2010

20. Júlia:

Both versions are wonderful, however, I am a bit disappointed since they do not, in fact, include all accented characters. The ő and ű characters (U+0150, U+0170) are missing, as they do in the case of most free fonts, and while I know that Hungarian designers and typophils are not that many, it would still help us tremendously if font designers added those two simple little characters in their fonts.
Sorry for the rant, and thanks for the fonts anyway, they will sure come in handy in some English-based project!

April 13, 2010

21. Peter:

Both fonts look very nice; excellent work.

I’m curious as to what license applies to the Matchbook fonts? Perhaps you haven’t thought much about the legalese, but it would make the typeface much more usable if people knew what they can (and cannot) do with Matchbook. If you are inclined to open-source the fonts, I recommend the SIL Open Font License, but a Creative Commons license would also provide an easy way to select exactly the rights you want to maintain on the font.

35. ariane c:

This is a beautiful and timeless font. Thanks for releasing it to the world. I also love your font introduction graphics ;-)

April 15, 2010

36. Gwen F.:

Why are 99% of the comments referring to your beautiful work as a font? This is a typeface, just as was stated on the titling of the design. A font is a tangible set of type, not something in cyberspace.

No one checks for spelling, grammar, or content when they write these days. It’s kind of sad.

April 16, 2010

37. Tamar:

Thank you so much!

April 17, 2010

38. Niina:

Typeface looks fantastic! However, I’d really like to know how I am allowed to use this?

April 22, 2010

40. Katy B:

I downloaded it, now what? Help! How do I actually use this adorable font?

April 23, 2010

A sweety font, we made a link here.

April 27, 2010

42. Patti:

Great work!

@Katy B: If you’re using Windows 7, go to Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Fonts. Unzip the file and place the TrueType font file in the Fonts folder. It can be similarly done with older Windows OS.

Hope that helps!
