Franchise Bold - A Free Stout Display Font by Derek Weathersbee

Once in while a project of such beauty and generosity shows up. Like the stunning Lobster font, Derek Weathersbee has lavished the utmost attention to the presentation of his typeface, Franchise Bold.

The fact that it is a free download just mystifies me and hugely inspires me. This is an essential addition to your font library if you're looking for a solid font for your next logo design and/or graphic design project.

Franchise is the first weight available but Derek is working on three other weights, Regular, Light and Hairline. So when complete, this will prove to be a formidable type family just right for some of those retro designs you have planned.

And to put some commercial font foundries to shame, Derek has an impressive 'Test Drive' for Franchise.

Of course donations are accepted and who wouldn't?

And should you feel in the mood, some lovely looking shirts can be purchased. As Derek says 'Heck, the Typeface was free. Go!'

Font Licensing

Derek even has made Franchise Bold licensing for this as open and free as it can possibly be.

It is FREE to use for both personal and commercial. You can embed the font and/or link to it via @font-face. Just don't alter/modify it and pass it off as your own.

View official Font Licence .

Download Franchise via Dereks website.
