We haven't posted about some free fonts in quite a while. We used to have a day of the week to offer some nice free findings in terms of fonts but it was getting difficult to find beautiful and worth sharing material.
It all started with a Portuguese soap packaging from the first half of the 20th Century. The 5 uppercase letters that spell NAZARÉ were sufficient to drive the creation of this typeface design. Created by Natanael Gama, Nazaré fits in a semi-serif category and has a large contrast. It works outstandingly in display use specially in the bolder weights that have even more contrast. The regular weights have a more moderate contrast and an overall less extravagant design, fitting best in the typographical conventions. This provides a better render in text use.
You can use this font in large headlines, logos, posters, book covers, and general display use as well as short strings of text.
Nazaré is the name of a small Portuguese fishing village known for its giant waves and peculiar people.
These glaring illustrations were crafted by the half Nazarene himself, and brilliant artist, Lorde Mantraste
