SDSU Collegiate is a freeware heavy to black collegiate/athelics slab display caps font with a sports jersey flare by Doug Peters.

This font is based on the SDSU (South Dakota State University) logo (or I should say, one of them). It is easily represented as SDSU in blue with a yellow outline (the school colors). SDSU is the home of the Jackrabbits and have been well known for their basketball teams, but their football program and other sports are extremely competitive, as well.

I'd been wanting to make this font for some time, but always have so many open projects and I never got around to it. Well, finally, I did it back in 2014. Of course it's very simple, which made it easy.

All there were originally, was capitals and numbers with a period and a hyphen, because it's really only intended for basketball and football jerseys, or the like. But the lowercase letters serve as the official (and usually skinnier) capital letters that make the blackened SDSU logo.

The uppercase capitals are actually the alternate capitals, but are presented there because they are wider (broader) and work better there when in an environment other than simply recreating the SDSU logo.


I did later go back in and corrected a few of the characters such as the M & W, the E & F, and the O & Q, for continuity in 2014.

In October of 2016, I realized that the font had become somewhat popular on my website (I was surprised to see that it had become one of the top 5 downloads there). So I realized that I should add some simple English language punctuation for convenience sake.

As I looked at the finished update, I saw a number of 'improvements' I could make, and I wound-up making a couple of new versions: 'SDSU Collegiate V2' & 'SDSU Collegiate V2 Extended'.

Those new versions of this font can be found at:

Font Tools:

If you would like to create your own original masterpeice font, get yourself a decent font editor and create your own font, I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, also. The FontLab Studio software package is also offered as the premium flagship typographic editing tool of Fontlab. (FontStruct is free, of course)

Submit Your Font to Font-Journal:

Be sure to submit any freeware or shareware TTF font that you create which we would be happy to distribute 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. The more accented letters (for supporting foreign languages) and special characters available (especially bullets, , , and special punctuation), the more complete and useful a font will be, to more people. Be sure to use a unicode letterset when you save your work or the font simply won't display right, here at Font-Journal. That's our most definitely 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 a fair shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the very 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. If my business takes off where I can afford a staff, I will have someone to tend to it more often. Short Link:

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. Short Link:

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 an 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, with domain name registrations and servers added soon after, and offering a complete set of webmaster tools as Domain Hostmaster. I then added the Domainance store in an effort to keep the .name gTLD extension registrations and transfers available when our supplier dropped it. Short Link: Short Link: Short Link:

Nowadays, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, as I sell for less than almost anyone, and offer more, with better technical support. Professional domainers, designers, developers, optimizers and webmasters do like how I keep prices as low as possible and add my expertise and value where I can.

'Mobile-First' Responsive Website Design:

If you are interested in getting a website designed for yourself or your business, I still do that at Salamader Design. Stop by and check me out there. I have a growing portfolio of sites that I need to add as examples of my work, there...
