Boomtown Deco by Chris Skillern

Today's font of choice, Boomtown Deco, was created by graphics designer Chris Skillern. "I hail from Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city that flourished in the early 20th century due to the discovery of oil," he comments on Dribbble. "Because of the period it was born into, Tulsa's downtown is filled with beautiful art deco architecture. This font is a tribute to my city, inspired by the tall, condensed lettering of art deco-style posters."

Boomtown Deco is available to download for free over on Dribbble.
