Catacumba is a six-weight typeface inspired by the painted inscriptions of the Igreja de São Francisco church’s catacombs in Porto, Portugal. The forms are clearly influenced by Victorian style, with an unmistakable French heritage, and yet they somehow convey a decidedly Portuguese sensibility.

Catacumba’s centerpieces are its two titling styles: the exuberant Excelsa, and the didonesque Moderata.  Each Catacumba font includes an expanded selection of OpenType ranges and features, allowing for extensive usewithin the Latin range.

Crash Numbering is free for all!

Crash Numbering Font Free

These two numeral fonts are designed by Philip Krayna and RXC.

The serializing technique known as crash numbering has been in use since before computers started roaming the earth… some say as far back as the days of phrenology and 5¢ sasparillas. If you’ve ever bought a raffle ticket or been handed a claim check you’ve experienced crash numbering first hand.

Our digital simulacrum, which we are proud to present here and now, includes Serif and Gothic styles; three variants of each numeral; and a smattering of numerical symbols. It’s ideal for numbering invoices, gift certificates, undergarments… anything that’ll hold still long enough to run through your inkjet printer. And it’s free.
