It’s time for politics, with primaries coming up early next year for the presidential elections. That means that candidates and protesters and marching activists all need posters and we have the fonts to make them look good and draw the eye. Whether you’re standing outside a milk subsidies townhall or marching for ferret liberation or making posters for your campaign for Supreme Overlord of the Universe, these are the fonts you need.
The key to designing fonts for political posters is that they be highly readable from a distance, with good, clear open spaces and relatively bold lines. Most of the time you only want to use one or two fonts on a poster, but it’s good to have some variety to choose from. You want to have access to fonts which are unique so that your posters don’t look just like all the others, but they can’t be too unique because that will make you look peculiar. Most candidates aren’t running on the Freak Power Party ticket or the Feudal Monarchist ticket, so psychedelic fonts and medieval gothic fonts are right out. What you want are fonts which tread the fine line between the ubiquitous and the unique.
The package includes 10 specially selected fonts. These include both serif and sans serif fonts, extra bold fonts, some special narrowly customized fonts as well as two italic fonts stylistically compatible with the other fonts which are included. It also includes a special new image font called Campaign which features a nice selection of political images and emblems.
Madding, Aventine and Bastion are excellent for putting the name of a candidate in large letters in the middle of a poster. All three are hard to ignore and they offer a ncie set of choices. Albatross, Walsingham and Langhorne are well suited to smaller text for information about the candidate or slogans. Alexandrine and Atkinson Egyptian are there if you want something somewhat lighter and more open and Hamilton is a unique bold and narrow font if you need to fit a longer name in smaller space.
The Political Fonts package is available for order right away with immediate online delivery, or you can get it sent on CD the old fashioned way. You can also order any of the fonts individually from the Single Fonts section of our ordering site and you can order the full package HERE. The complete package is only $49.
