Echelon was created in late 1999 in vector editing software on a Palm computer; sort of an iPod Touch for the late 1990’s. It is, as far as I can recall, the only font I designed using something other than Fontographer/Fontlab. Almost all of Echelon’s characters were developed during a Toronto/Seattle return flight. I entered it into a font contest and won FontLab, which I still use to this day. I recently decided it was time to re-examine Echelon and make some upgrades. The new Echelon is more refined, supports more languages, includes more punctuation/math symbols and is still free.
These fonts include a license that allows free commercial use: sometimes referred to as a desktop license. This allows you to install the fonts on a computer and use them to create posters, web graphics, game graphics, t-shirts, videos, signs, logos and more. Read the license agreement for details.
If you'd like to embed these fonts in an app, ebook, on the web or anything that's not covered by the desktop license agreement, visit the link below. You'll find distributors who offer different types of licenses or you can contact me for help.
