Avenura (Avenura.ttf) is a simple, clean sans font distributed as a freeware TrueType font/webfont under the Creative Commons Attribution License.

I would really appreciate the link back (attribution) if you like it or use it.

This font was created by me, Doug Peters.

About This Font:
The font, with reserved font name "Avenura" (filename: "Avenura.ttf"), in this official distribution archive was put together by the authoring designer, Doug Peters (https://www.Doug-Peters.com or https://Dougs.Work) is an enhanced distribution archive with more explicit documentation and a preview sample image. The development archive could contain mistakes if I am actively working on it and saving my work when someone downloaded it at the same time, so that is why I have an official distribution archive.

This font has an official release home page at the Font-Journal:
http://www.font-journal.com/fonts/13445/avenura.php Short Link: https://w3n.us/avenura

The font file in this archive was created using Fontstruct the free, online font-building tool.
This font has a development home page where the development archive (and any other versions) may be found:

Your rights, in summary (see License.txt for resource specifics on license details)...
This is a font is OK to use for commercial, non-profit, charitable or personal reasons. It is a clear, easy to read sans serif font (and web font {#webfont}), which is very basic so that it uses as few resources and memory as possible. It is a modular TrueType font with full vector instructions. It is also optimized for use in Flash, if you happen to be still using that (say, in an animation production house?).

You may redistribute this font if you so chose.

You may create a derivative font from this one and redistibute that one freely as long as you respect my original contribution by giving me credit for starting the project, documenting your contribution, and distribute it as freeware (and not for sale) under the same Creative Commons Attribution license.

About the Font Designer:
I am the authoring designer, Doug Peters (Douglas Peters, but no one calls me that). 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...

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, or otherwise use this font, or edit, modify, alter or append this font, I, the original author and Copyright holder of this font, 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 my business services 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)...

Doug Peters' Non-Business Websites:

Doug Peters' Domain, Hosting & Server Solutions:

Doug Peters' Web Design Services:

Doug Peters' Tech & Just Plain Relaxed Blogs:

However, do remember that this is a freeware font. As such, your only obligation is to link to one of my websites. That's it. One active link to one of my websites from any of your websites, blogs or social media profiles giving me credit for my work allows tou to to use my font for a lifettime (or as long as the one link is active).

You are not oblicated to use my services or my websites. Donations and custom work commissions are welcome. I design logos, websites, graphics and build up brands from nothing.

This is simply a request to encourage me so that I can continue to create new fonts, graphics, stock photography and useful infomational websites.

# Font Tools: #

Ever want to create your own font?
Try Fontstruct at https://w3n.us/fs
It’s free, easy and it’s fun.
Fontstruct © 2018 Rob Meek.

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.


Font Editor Software:
If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor to create your own font(s) on your PC or Mac, 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.

Submit to Google Fonts:
You can also submit your own font to Google Fonts. You can either use FontStruct to submit your finished SIL Open Font Licensed font which fulfills the required Google's required 215 basic basic glyphs (Google Font submission info is available on FontStruct), or you can submit it yourself. More info is available here, on how to submit your font to Google Fonts on GitHub:

(-I will update this Short Link at W3N.US if/when I find a better page on GitHub.com for this info.)

Font Cloud:
Font Cloud is a great place to store your fonts online so that if you need them, you can get them wherever you are as long as you have internet web access. This is a big deal with designers, publishers, printers, or absolutely anyone who relies on a custom font for a logo, letterhead, headline, content, documents, website UI, and all those appropriate webfonts. If you are designing fonts yourself, this may well be a necessity for you, so you can always access your projects. You will get considerable free space just for signing up with Font Cloud, and there are all sorts of options to expand your storage limits.


Collecting Quality Fonts:
If you are interested in grabbing commercial fonts for your own work, I am often showcasing commercial fonts that are free for a limited time, and quality freeware fonts that are OK for commercial use, at one of my fonts groups on Google+ or Facebook:

https://w3n.us/f0nts Fonts community at Google+ Communities.
https://w3n.us/fonts Digital Fonts group on Facebook Groups.

And I have a blog where I often announce my latest font creations or showcase the fonts I like:

More 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. HD Web Hosting offers great domain hosting, cloud hosting and web server solutions with a free domain name for each paid hosting account, and a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for each and every domain in your account. Site Domains has been added to the list ensuring that I offer the best deals on domains between all the major registrars.

http://www.Domainance.com Short Link: http://x.co/domainance
https://HDWebHosting.com Short Link: https://w3n.us/webhost
https://SiteDomains.com Short Link: https://w3n.us/domains

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.

I do love to help where I can, so if you feel like reaching out to me, contact me via:


Free Informational Websites:
I mentioned that I like to create free informational websites. Font-Journal is just one of these sites.

I also have others that are small websites and blogs which have specific little bits of info that are related to domains, cloud hosting, web design, website promotion, social media and online marketing. I try to keep these sites up-to-date, as well:

https://Valuate.Info Intellectual property & digital asset valuations.
https://DomainPerfection.com My domain name industry blog (complete w/ the odd rant).
https://Domainers.Name My premium domain name portfolio & info.
https://PremiumBrand.Name Premium brand names showcase website.

http://phpinfoFile.com Find your webhost config without waiting for tech support.
http://www.Faviconvert.com Add your logo/photo as your website favorites icon (a 'favicon').

I am also currently working on a rather large and very cool website that will eventually unveil at:


'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 I need to add there...

https://Salamander.US Short Link: http://x.co/SDesign

Intellectual Properties:
I also design logos and complete brand identity packages, as well as consult and educate people on business branding, including how to conceive, create, design, develop, manage, and protect their own intellectual properties and brand names. This is my primary interest and the whole reason I took control of my own names and brands when others failed me (miserably).

To further promote my business websites, I established a T-shirts & gear products sales page at:


That site also has a few slogan and cartoon style Tees, as well as gear that is available for purchase. The store also acts as a showcase for some of my own logos and brands.

Stock Photography:
Additionally, I try my hand at stock photography every so often. I especially like to take photos of wildlife, but it is hard to always get a good shot with wild critters like deer, turkey, pheasant, etc. But I try to get a few good shots now and again and submit them.

However, I do not recommend setting up any new profiles on any social media/networking site as it is clear that US corporations are spying on our interests, compiling our personal data, raiding our lives, betraying our privacy and using artificial intelligence to conduct espionage on each individual in order to monetize their digital lives, all under the noses of a do-nothing government. This is a sorry state of affairs in early 2018. 'Nuff sed.
