SAF Free Font

Jun 29th 2010

The heat is on in the FIFA World Cup down in South Africa. The mundial roared into it’s second phase where less than 16 teams will currently have to battle it out to see who will be the new world champions. In many locations across South Africa, you can meet names, headings and signs written with a really characteristic and unique font.

Inspired by this particular casual font, spiced with some African “Ayoba”,( A South African made-up word meaning “cool/coolness”), I decided to make this new font available for absolute free download exclusively from the fontfabric website. I am not the author of the original font – but simply vectorized a number of letters from the official WC logo and build the rest of them. Enjoy!

    Excellent font, expect for one problem: it isn’t yours. The type belongs to FIFA, so letting people use this font commercially would probably not go over to well with them. I would caution you to change the license parameters for this one or just flat out take it down.
