|In an article last week we explored the origins of the font used in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained and a bit of the history of the Django genre of films. That was part of the process of the development of an original font based on the lettering used in the original Django, a process similar to what was presumably used to create the font featured in the Tarantino film. The goal of the project was not to create a duplicate of the title font in the new film, but to make an original font working from the same source material. Naturally the end result is quite similar to the font in Django Unchained, but at the same time a unique and original interpretation of the title lettering in the older film.
Our Original Django font includes a full set of uppercase characters and custom small caps, plus numbers, punctuation and some special characters like the extra-long “J” used in the original titles. Like all our fonts it is available in both TrueType and OpenType format for Windows or MacOS.
You can view a full character set of Original Django by using our new type preview tool to view custom samples of text in this font. Or alternatively you can download the demo version with a limited character set for free.
And if you like it, you can download the full version with both character sets from our OMLINE STORE for just $24.
