Orbitron Font – Free Open Source Font for Download


Orbitron made by Matt McInerney

Orbitron, by Matt McInerney (@mattmc), is another open source font from The League of Movable Type, one of my favourite font web sites for quality fonts. It is available for download below.

A few words from the designer : Orbitron is a geometric sans-serif typeface intended for display purposes. It features four weights (light, medium, bold, and black), a stylistic alternative, small caps, and a ton of alternate glyphs.

Matt is also responsible for another open source font called Raleway.


Orbitron was designed so that graphic designers in the future will have some alternative to typefaces like Eurostile or Bank Gothic. If you’ve ever seen a futuristic sci-fi movie, you have may noticed that all other fonts have been lost or destroyed in the apocalypse that led humans to flee earth.

Only those very few geometric typefaces have survived to be used on spaceship exteriors, spacestation signage, monopolistic corporate branding, uniforms featuring aerodynamic shoulder pads, etc. Of course Orbitron could also be used on the posters for the movies portraying this inevitable future.
