Rio Art Deco - a free TrueType PC Font from Renn Crump
The font file, Rioartdo.ttf, is a stylized decorative drop caps display font with a bit of flair, using a pictograph to style the otherwise black serif font. The lowercase is filled with drop cap reproproductions of the uppercase, but there are no numbers or punctuation.
Rio Art Deco font version 1.001 is by Renn Crump (aka Psuedo Nym), created in April of 2002 and the font offers 52 letters. Renn Crump offers this font for free at Typoasis (at Moor Station).
I have archived it here at Font-Journal and included this text file to note its origin and acceptable use, which seems like pretty much anything, as it was a free font with no license noted. I have sent an email to Renn at the indicated email address, but it was returned as a permanently failed delivery, as if the address given on his website doesn't exist.
This particular distribution font archive (the one with this note) was downloaded from the Font-Journal and the home page for this font is:
If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor and add to or otherwise modify this font (such as to add numbers, punctuation, or european accents and characters), I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might well do the job, also.
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.

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.

Nowadays, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, as I sell for less than most 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.
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 I need to add there...
