    I tried to download Otari font but i could not find the download button. Any help?

  • Really nice fonts thanks for sharing

  • I’ve updated the Download Page link to be more clear. Click here to go to the download page (it’s on MyFonts.com – and you need an account in order to download it).

    A MyFonts.com account is worth it because they serve a lot of amazingly high-quality free fonts. Three of the items listed here, if I remember correctly, I downloaded off MyFonts.com.

    Oh and by the way, I used Otari on the thumbnail lead image (for the “Humanist” text).

    Nice fonts. In the title image that says ‘Humanists Sans Serif’, is the font for Sans Serif, Yanone Kaffeesatz?

  • Yup, Yanone Kaffeesatz for “Sans Serif” and Otari Bold-limited for “Humanist”.

    In addition, I used a texture from our Mysterious Grunge Stains: Texture Pack for the background texture. And for details and additional background texture, 3 custom pixel patterns that’s part of a set that I’m going to release here as a freebie pack when I feel it’s ready to share it to the public.
