Kaiju :: Free Font of the Day

Oh boy, do I have a nice font for you, Kaiju! Plus it is free for both personal and commercial use. Check out the numbers, too, they are gorgeous. Get it here.

“KAIJU is a sans serif typeface that comes in multiple weights,” says its designer Anthony James. “Its simplicity makes it a very legible display font, perfect for editorials. The equal emphasis on thick and thin allows for both bold and subtle aesthetics.”
