“SDSU Collegiate V2 Wide” atheletic freeware slab serif font Copyright Doug Peters, Copyright 2017.
===================================================================================================


This font lends itself well to sports, sporting events, collegiate events, jersey numbers and printing, and collegiate use. It can be used as a web font (#webfont) any way you want to use it on websites, blogs or in apps, but I don't recommend it, it is a very limited character set font meant specifically for bold letters and numbers on jerseys to allow them to stand out. Only the basic punctuation, uppercase, smaller drop cap lowercase alternatives, and numerals are supported. It isn't meant for content, but will do well in a headline, if you want all caps.

Development Archives:
“SDSU Collegiate V2 Extended” is a font (or 'FontStruction') created in FontStruct http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1312378 that was originally cloned (copied) from the FontStruction “SDSU Collegiate V2” http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/1312353 by Doug Peters, which was in turn cloned (copied) from the Fonstruction “SDSU Collegiate” http://fontstruct.com/fontstructions/show/967797 by Doug Peters, both of which are publicly distributed through the Font-Journal as Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike freeware fonts, as well. The development archives have less documentation with them, but if I am boring you, by all means, take a peak.

All of the public released versions of this Font Family (and various incarnations) are officially distributed through my own categorized freeware and shareware PC/Mac/Linux Font Repository, the Font-Journal, and the official release distribution archives can be found at:

About the Font Designer:
I am the authoring designer, Doug Peters (Douglas Peters, but no one calls me that). I created this font in celebration of my college days at South Dakota State University at a time when they had been dominating in sports. They have always been a contender for the crown (and often kinged) in their conference championship. And despite the fact that it is a small state land grant college, the school works a variety of wonders in scholastics, electronics, business and farm management, agrigultural sciences, nursing and atheletics, which besides basletball also includes football, wrestling, volleyball, golf and a vaiety of other sports.

I do enjoy designing fonts. I wish I had much more time to do it. To get an updated list of my officially released fonts, check out:
Other fonts by me...
http://w3n.us/dpfonts

Most of the fonts I design don't develop the way I would hope. So there are some others I am still working on that I keep under lock and key at FontStruct (https://w3n.us/fs). I also use other online tools to create and edit fonts, especially when I find the free font tools.

Sadly, I can't seem to afford a font editor that I like. If anyone has one lying around gathering dust that they are not using, I will take it! ;)

Part of the reason I am into fonts is because I am into logos. I am absolutely fascinated by the whole branding experience, how a business becomes branded not on their logo effectiveness, but how they are perceived in the community they serve.

As a small business man, freelancer and brand consultant myself, I was alarmed when Network Solutions started jerking me around over my domain name, and so I researched the very best possible place to trust my name, and partnered with them to create the best possible domain registration and web hosting service possible, and many of my fellow colleagues (graphic designers, web designers, developers, webmasters, search optimizers, online promoters and social marketers) use my online store, Domain Hostmaster, for the very reasons I set it up, to avoid being rolled by high registration fees, high web server costs, too much cross-selling (web spam), too many marketing emails (I have no email marketing program at all). My service is among the best, with a dedicated support team available 24/7 every day of the year to assist you with your name or website. Our rates are among the lowest, our equipment the best, the NOC one of the largest and most secure in the world.

So, you can see that I have a passion for brands. It all started out because I had left college and designed a portfolio for myself. One of the big hits at the senior show was an interactive program I wrote in Director. Then I taught myself HTML and the MIS Director saw my work and had me design a site for him. Then the college atheletic conference and things were starting well.

But then I ran into 2008 and haven't had the same workload since. This is a real conservative area, and many didn't invest in the new fangled web. So I do what I can, with the time I have, but I do enjoy creating fonts, and get tickled when some of them wind-up in logos, or I design a font specifically for a logo.

SDSU Collegiate has gotten pretty popular over the years, so I expanded the family. Recently, I contributed one of my fonts, "WebFont", to Google Fonts, though I have no idea if they will accept it or not.

Truly, the best fonts take a while to develop. Even if you are just mulling it over in your head and can whip out a font in a day, those hours brain storming are still a real investment into what you are doing. I tend to try other things and get off the style path i should be on, and have to go back and correct things I thought looked good. But usually I note them and clone the font to create that style that seemed to deserve its own inception.

I, the original authoring artist (Doug Peters) will always appreciate credit for his work. If you use, publish, produce, modify, alter or append this font, the original author and Copyright holder of this font, I, Doug Peters, would really appreciate a link back to one of my sites and I ask that you consider using one of my low cost professional services. If you don't use them yourself, at least please link to one of my websites. You may choose to link to any one of my websites in the following 4 lists (and not all are businesses)...

Font Tools:
Of course, I have mentioned FontStruct, the free tool I used to make this and many more fonts. 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 with it, and there is a great little community of designers there that share with each other, though if you want, you may well keep to yourself and still use the font editor.

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:
You heard a lot about me already (if you read through it). But, there is always a lot behind an old tired face...

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.

http://www.Domainance.com Short Link: http://x.co/domainance
http://SiteDomains.com Short Link: http://x.co/sdomains

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.
