A downloadable typeface


this is a typeface i have been making, inspired by the actual play podcast Friends at the Table's "Partizan" season. Partizan is a sci-fi mech show about a horrific empire – the Divine Principality – at war with itself, massive robots, and our ability to imagine better worlds. it combines technological marvels that approach the mythological with gritty, lo-fi realities. the vibe is a combination of medieval fantasy and original trilogy Star Wars. i really, really love it, and cannot recommend it highly enough! 

various fan-works have tapped illuminated manuscripts as points of reference (see: Annie Johnston-Glick's fantastic maps). the idea of a typeface in that style resonated with me, and i figured it would be a "fun weekend project." it was not a "fun weekend project."

two months later, Divinity Sans is here. it combines calligraphic contrast with minimalist restraint and cynicism. it includes both Regular and Italic variants. it is an open type font format. this is my first full typeface, so the hinting isn't great – it really works better as a display font. some day i hope to revisit this and update that.

like you probably saw, you can download it for free! no licenses or whatever, just go make some cool stuff. maybe send it to me? i'd love to see it.

you can find more of my design work at: www.fischermade.xyz

(and really i do urge you to go listen to Friends at the Table its so great)

absolutely love it, but the regular otf file seems to contain the italics font as well :)

ah! thanks for the heads up. this is my first typeface i've ever actually released – when i update this, i'll make sure to sort that out. and thanks for the kind words!

no worries! it really  is a gorgeous typeface, thank you so much for creating it.
