05 - Blizzard (8 weights)

Well...the weather, lets get all British about it!...We here at G-R-A have been so inspired by the torrents of snow over the last week - we made a typeface about it!

There are 8 "weights" to the blizzard typeface from the simple dots of DB_nobox to the whiteout that is DB_forty... We think the typeface can be used as decoration or as readable text - so quite a versatile font.

This typeface is now unavailable for download - but will be included in the limited edition CD Rom of all 52 Typefaces at the beginning of 2010. To secure a CD Rom, please email us (Phil & Gabi) at you would like to get involved in making a typeface for the project, please email us at : or leave a comment below!


  1. cool - ok bad pun I know.

    Welcome to ABZblogs

    Do you do GD fonts too?


  2. Hey Billy...
    fit's a GD font? - is it a specific format?
    thanks for stopping by! I'll add your link code asap!
    yours, Phil.

  3. GD fonts are used in php to output text via the image commands. I've always thought they need some more.

    The current lot (well the only ones I can find!) can be seen at

    Apparently they're easy to make. *shrugs* I dunno ;oP


  4. have you ever looked at Sifr?
    "an easy" way to embed any font into a webpage as H1, H2, P etc...

    you just need a flash file with all the font characters in it (embedded)..and the sifr code does the rest...but I've found it buggy as hell - hard to control the CSS...but I didn't try too hard to "override" the apparent default settings...

    thanks for the pointer tho!


please leave some wisdom for Gabi and Phil to soak up!
