Hey, we made a new free font for you! Our latest offering here is called Particulate and it’s a collaborative effort by about 50 young designers who each contributed a letter at an AIGA fontmaking workshop that was directed by designer Anne Ulku. The new font comes with an amazing introductory video by animator Adam Tow, too, wow! The Particulate font is a free download for you today.

Also new at Chank.com today is the “Top Fonts” section, which has a new display listing of some of Chank Co’s all-time most popular fonts. All our fonts are now sold through other distributor sites like Fonts.com and MyFonts.com, so the displays you see here at Chank.com are just for lookin’ at, but they have links to our distributors’ websites where you can go buy ‘em if you want.

Well I can’t really show pictures of ‘em all right now, but there are many new custom fonts in production here at Chank Co. Been busy making new ones all year for book publishers and video game companies most recently. And I’m also giddy about some fonts we made years ago that are just now starting to show up in places. New custom fonts have been seen in best-selling books, video games, and also a few apps and on national & international tv shows. Oh and also a few big branding campaigns, too. Thanks to all y’all who keep sending those custom font jobs my way!

Also let me say that the “news“ section of my website is not really the best place to find out about the latest Chank news. For the latest updates on what’s going around here, please follow me on Twitter or join the group on Facebook. You can also subscribe to my newsletter if you'd like to be notified when we’ve got a new free font release for you.

We are pleased to announce the release of an exciting new free font, Tenderloin by the famous UK street artist Eine. Wow! That’s a big deal. Eine is amazing. So flattered and honored that he has offered up this sharp new font design for me to give to you for free today. What a good guy!

This whole website is new. That’s pretty exciting. Big congrats & thanks to the helpful developer folks at room34 who did a great job building it all from scratch using the latest responsive design techniques & smart web standards. Brilliant! Thanks also to the talented designers Robert Pflaum and Anne Ulku who helped with the visual design of the new site. Hooray, hooray for a whole new Chank.com! It’s been a long-time coming, but I’m thrilled to have this concise, modern website to show my fonts off at.

Did I mention the fonts on the cover of the Hunger Games books? Yeah, wow and wow again. You can read more about that at my Posterous page, where I hope to put more newsy updates for you from time to time.


And yeah, ah shucks, here’s some nice things people have said about my work recently.

Lastly, this one is from last year, but it’s still a pretty great in-depth and thoughtful interview:
