Blob by Superfried Free Font

Here is the latest free font from Superfried called: blob. The font is available in two formats, round and square. Like before, this is predominantly a display and experimental font. Unlike before, since the styling of round and square are sufficiently different, it was necessary to develop two separate fonts rather than utilising the shift key to switch styles. The majority of the simple shape development was created using FontStruct. Once the limitations had been reached, further refinement and finishing was achieved in FontForge.

Since we have started using them, we have found the shapes in blob round are quite conducive to developing cartoon characters, as you can see in the first poster below.
