Uncle Typewriter font family

Designed by Germán Olaya in 2008
A very dirty, and yet legible type. It comes from an old document that was made in the 70s. Every character was developed as an unique design piece. Perfect for titles, credits and display type. Uncle Typewriter has been used in movie and TV titles, and it adds a very strong character to any layout. Complete character set. It comes in 4 versions: UncleTypewriter 1: This is the classic dirt version of UncleTypewriter. UncleTypewriter 2: An alternate version with variations in some characters. UncleTypewriter tape: A “negative” version, with a black grunged box in the back and a white character at the front. Ideal to make emphasis in specific words or phrases. UncleTypewriter Box: This is the dingbat font. Is a collection of over 50 very detailed grunge boxes, that can be used in combination with the other Uncletypewriter fonts or any other font to create backgrounds, designs or just to add roughed edges and dirt details to an particular layout.

Tag: frac

Function: Replaces figures separated by a slash with 'common' (diagonal) fractions. The user enters 3/4 in a recipe and gets the threequarters fraction.

Standard Ligatures

Tag: liga

Function: Replaces a sequence of glyphs with a single glyph which is preferred for typographic purposes. This feature covers the ligatures which the designer/manufacturer judges should be used in normal conditions. The glyph for ffl replaces the sequence of glyphs f f l.


Tag: ordn

Function: Replaces default alphabetic glyphs with the corresponding ordinal forms for use after figures. One exception to the follows-a-figure rule is the numero character (U+2116), which is actually a ligature substitution, but is best accessed through this feature. The user applies this feature to turn 2.o into 2.o (abbreviation for secundo).
