[type] A Free Font For Today: Nevis

2299.Nevis is a free font by Bournemouth, England web designer Ed Merritt that seems to recall famously British typefaces like the famous Johnston (the London Underground font). It’s a good, strong, modern sans-serif that is good for clean, structured layouts where readability is important, that also projects a kind of dressed-down modernity.

Although I bet if you grunged-it-up for adventure’s sake, it’d look pretty good too.

Judging by the illustration, I’m imagining it was named for Ben Nevis – a Scottish mountain which is the highest point in the British Isles.

Oh, yeah, you’d wat to download it. Here you go: http://www.tenbytwenty.com/products/typefaces/nevis.
