About the face: Yesterday was #ComeyDay and all we could think to say is “Yikes.” So here we are with this week’s free font: Yikes by YOMAGICK, a freelance art director, illustrator and brand designer who’s based in Dublin but is currently spending time in Malta.
Yikes reminds us of VAG Rounded by Linotype, which was designed in 1979 for Volkswagen so it has a nice vintage feeling. Yikes, however, has a bit more of a handmade, inky feel to it.
The glyphs are really unique, although we do wish there were a few more available. Yikes is missing a few key glyphs like $ and %. Other than that, this free font is perfect for headlines and posters, as well as logos.
Yikes Medium is available free for personal use.
