Free Font Friday: Agent
Agent, a new display font from designer Mark O’Neill, is quite the design feat. It’s a mix of modern and geometric in a reductive and minimal style. In a modern style Didone you might expect a hairline line, but Agent foregoes all lines altogether and uses negative space for the eye to fill in where a line would be. Artful, elegant, and unexpected, Agent is a font design that really thinks outside the box.
Agent would be a great choice for logotype and branding projects, poster design, and editorial projects. The font is free for personal use and one can contact the designer to inquire about commercial licensing.
