Airbag free font
Airbag is a trendy display face aimed at achieving a stylish, clean, slab look and feel. Airbag free version only has uppercase letters and numbers (with a few other characters thrown in for good measure). As I said in the intro the font works best at large sizes so it is best used for big headlines and posters.
You might have to tweak the leading and kerning, this is the first font I have created and the learning curve in fontographer is quite steep – and my time quite short. The font has only one weight,
has no lowercase letters, it also has no Scandinavian letters, such as Æ Ø Å (sorry) airbag now has uppercase and lowercase letters with over 200 glyphs (for the paid version).
The name, well, to be honest I could not decide on a name at first. So many typefaces, so many names. I was gonna to call it “Hipster Headline”, then it changed to Idioteque. I liked the idioteque name but thought that people might not know how to spell the name, so dropped it.
Finally I decided to name it Airbag. The name comes from the Radiohead song Airbag from the Album ok computer. I think its easy to remember, I searched online and couldn’t find any typefaces with that name – so it stuck, boom, a new font was born – yea.
