Dogtown by Simon Stratford

Today's typeface of choice, Dogtown, was created by web designer Simon Stratford. "This new font has texture," he comments. "Bags of texture. I finally figured out a way to add a massive amount of detail to a font, without it killing my computer. Perhaps too much detail. The intention was to make Dogtown look more random and less repetitive, more like natural letterpress printing."

You can test drive Dogtown for the price of a tweet or buy the full version for just $10.
