Free Font Friday: Liquido
I must say, I am a fan of the wavy and warped type trend seen in poster and editorial design at the moment. Now, designer Alessandro Comotti has made Liquido, a fabulous free font that has all the qualities of this wonderfully weird visual style.
Liquido has two styles, Regular and Fluid. Regular holds its own as a font in its own right. The letters are tall, condensed and bold with rounded corners. The regular version is kind of like a ’90s futuristic font meets Art Deco’, which is really quite fresh!
Liquido Fluid is the wavy version. What works about this version is that the fluid quality is not overdone, the letters have only one wave each, which implies the liquid feel without making the letters appear too out of proportion and distorted.
The designs of both versions of Liquido are artful and inspired. The typeface is free for personal use and a commercial version can be purchased from Comotti’s Behance page.
