Gerald Gallo Presents

... his latest from a family of over 106 fonts. This one called "Prominent Display" is from his headline-only series and is not for the meek. This one is superbly suited for big display use, and oddly enough for the internet. Straight lines and 45-degree turns raster clean and crisp. It's also great for signage using vinyl cutters or plotters.

Rah, Rah, Rah,

Here's Gerald Gallo's headline font just in time for football season...

Display University

Display University is a display font that gives you the big lead when you need that extra yardage. It was designed specifically for display, headline, logotype, branding, and similar applications.

Display UniversityThe bonus is you get two fonts -- two fonts in one: the character set is in outline, and the shift + character set is solid. So mix and match. Unfortunately it cannot be used in concert to produce multicolored type, but it's easy to stroke and repeat for that good-old grid-iron look.

Gerald says: "I envision Display University used in connection with scholastic and sport themes."

We agree... sisk, boom, bah


chamfer Display Chamfer is another of those killer display fonts not intended for text. We tried some 16 point text with it for a very unusual effect! WOW. No, you wouldn't want a lot of text, with this font!

Noting the straight legs and 45-degree curves you'll see this font will do well in just about any setting -- online or on lpaper. This is the fourth font in Gerald Gallo's series of display fonts intended for display use only. It was designed specifically for display, headline, logotype, branding, and similar applications -- including lowercase and numbers. Here's a sample
