SF Diego Sans TrueType font family offers the complete freeware font family distribution archive from ShyFonts Type Foundry by Derek Vogelpohl.

SF Diego Sans version 1.0 was created and released as a freeware font in 2001 by ShyFonts Type Foundry, and is a part of the SF Diego Sans family. For the complete Freeware licensing details, please read the "Readme.txt" text file included in this archive.

This font is simple, artistic, concise, precise and beautiful in its minilistic sans-serif simplicity, lending a handwritten feel to a clean sans drop-cap headline print font. The curves are round and gradual, or variable and hairpinned in tight corners, occasionally stopping abruptly when appropriate (such as in half circles) giving the font a unique stylish look that seems to justify its use comfortably on a retro diner or equally at home at a modern surfside retreat.

The complete SF Diego Sans family archive has a home in the Font-Journal at...


...and includes the full font family, which is comprised of...

- SF Diego Sans

- SF Diego Sans Oblique

- SF Diego Sans Condensed

- SF Diego Sans Condensed Oblique

- SF Diego Sans Outline

- SF Diego Sans Outline Oblique

- SF Diego Sans Shaded

- SF Diego Sans Shaded Oblique

...and each version offers a complete 194 unicode character set which supports Basic Latin, the Latin-1 Supplement, Extended-A Latin, Spacing Modifier Letters, General Punctuation, Currency Symbols and Letterlike Symbols.

The whole SF Diego Sans TTF PC font family is a favorite of mine, personally. I do already use it as the basis of at least one of my logos. And according to the designer, full embedding of the font is allowed, which is a big plus.

The original ShyFonts.com website for ShyFonts Type Foundry cited in the original Readme.txt text file isn't accessible (4/29/2016), but after a little research it seems that Derek Vogelpohl reopened his original foundry under a new brand as ShyFoundry Fonts in Omaha in 2008, and a new improved freeware version, 1.1, was released that year which is intended for personal use only. I do have to keep this older 1.0 version around for my archival purposes having already used this version of the freeware font (prior to 2008) in one of my own brands.

I will have put the new "for personal use" freeware version online, as well as register it for my own projects, as soon as possible.

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.




Submit Your Font:

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.

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 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.

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.
