WebFont is a rather unique style of TrueType web font (#webfont) by Doug Peters (https://www.Doug-Peters.com aka: Douglas Peters) released and distributed as freeware under the SIL Open Font License.

This license allows the user to use this font openly in many exciting ways, and encourages its continued development. For more about this license, see the text file "WebFont_License.txt" included in this official distriibution archive.

From the Authoring Designer:


"WebFont is specifically designed to have a tall playful wackiness that is easily legible and lends itself well to section headers. This font, though small in file size has a generous latin character set with added symbols and dingbats that I, as a designer, would like to have available for a website or app UI.

"There is a simple uniformity among the tall, blocky characters that is intended to (hopefully) lend an informal happiness while allowing for clarity.

"This font was designed especially for website use, though there should be no issues with it being used elsewhere.

"I hope you will enjoy it a fraction of how much I enjoyed making it.

"As well as supporting a large latin character set (Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended A and a variety of other Latin characters), WebFont supports a healthy number of punctuation characters and important symbols like the Copyright, Trademark, Service Mark, & Tel:, as well as a small assortment of Dingbats. I try to use Dingbats for the UI when I design websites, so I included a few without weighing the font down too much, and the font still loads quickly. After all, loading a vector based font for UI stuff is a lot easier and quicker than loading graphic files.

"Hopefully, if you use it as a web font on your website or in an app, you will add a link to my site, Font Journal (http://www.Font-Journal.com), in the credits of your website or blog (professional sites & blogs give credit for the resources used that aren't theirs), if you use it or distribute it, but that is not required."

UPDATE April 21, 2018:

Corrected the 0 and the x. I made the zero skinnier and corrected the x so that the cross-junction was better balanced between the top and bottom of the character (like the capital X). There still may be issues that may disqualify it from being included into the Google Fonts repository that I don't agree with. -DP


This is a freeware font, it (and successive derivatives) should never be sold, or even be included as a part of a paid collection, it is a FREE software font (Freeware).

The official distribution archive with my own sample and character preview images, as well as this more complete documentation text file, has a home page at Font-Journal.com...

I (the authoring designer, Doug Peters) have also submitted WebFont to Google Fonts just last night. As such, it is a new issue at GitHub and you are invited to comment on the project.

Font Tools:

Try creating your own font, it's fun. Fontstruct is a free font editor available at which was the tool chosen to make this font - it’s fun, free, and easy to learn and use. You can even make your own version of this font.

https://fontstruct.com Short Link: http://x.co/fs

If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor to create your own font(s), I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, too. FontLab is the flagship typographic tool of the Fontlab company. However, do note that I do use Fontstruct online.




Submit Your Font:

Be sure to submit any font you might create or legally modify that we could use here. Any font that has a complete letterset (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 &+~!@#$%^&*()_=-`"':;<>?/|\[{}],.) that is freely distributable would be greatly apprectiated, especially if it is OK for commercial use. We also love fonts that can be used as web fonts. Be sure to use a unicode letterset when you save your work or the font simply won't display right here at Font-Journal. It's our most important requirement.

About Font-Journal:

Font-Journal is a cataloged archive of freeware and shareware fonts that I maintain for my small business, start-up and freelancing clients. I try to collect PC truetype freeware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes, and shareware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes upon registration and/or payment of the shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the same variety. The end result is a pretty decent font repository, although I can only work on it in my spare time, which I have little of.

About Me:

My portfolio usually needs to be updated, as I always have a ton of projects going and I even like to design my own fonts to offer exclusively through my font respository at Font-Journal. But it is another good way to contact me.

I started out as an motorcycle racer and mechanic. That didn't work out and I never got in a race car as planned. I wound-up as an illustrator, animator, doing some programming and tech support. Plus I have always been amatuer artist, photographer and videographer. I was designing logos, posters and graphics in college with Illustrator and Photoshop, and wound-up making a website portfolio just afterwards. A few people liked it and I wound-up as a freelance web design studio. Then I expanded into web hosting, then domain name registrations and servers, offering a complete set of webmaster tools as Domain Hostmaster. I then added the Domainance store in an effort to keep .name registrations and transfers available when our vendor dropped it. Site Domains has been added to ensure the best deals between all 3 registrars.

Nowadays, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, offering more for less than most with better customer/technical support. Professional domainers, designers, developers, optimizers and webmasters do like how I keep prices as low as possible and that I add my expertise and value where I can. In my spare time I have other projects, such as designing my own fonts.
