MFF DIN 1451 font Gurmukhi free download

DIN 1451 is a German standard for road, rail and aircraft lettering that has been around since the beginning of the 20th Century. The original idea for the font was that you could produce standardised lettering for road signs and so on using a ruler and a set of compasses by making use of a grid. There would be no need for a set of letters of the correct size because you would be able to make your own. For example, a capital 'H' would be seven units high and in the narrow font, three wide.


Circles have radii that are multiples of the grid spacing as well, although the 3x7 or 5x7 basic grid can be subdivided into 1/2s and 1/4s.

I have produced two fonts - one the condensed (Engschrift) and the other is the normal width (Mittelschrift) - the idea is that you use the Mittelschrift unless there is not enough space.

In addition, I have provided a version of each that has the Gurmukhi characters echoed down to the ASCII range so they occupy that as well as the Gurmukhi Unicode range in the two fonts - thus, there are four fonts.

Here, the outlines follow the original version of DIN 1451 - noticed quite easily from the '6' and '9' - even Linotype's 'FF DIN' font has been messed around with so the ASCII characters here are more like the original than in the font that you would pay serious money for.

I allow you to use my fonts for free because I believe that everybody should have equal access, regardless of availability of resources. If I insisted on charging for them then you would be looking at anything from around £50 for a single user to £10,000 for a single multinational film production (see here for an idea of the going rates for charged-for fonts from those who do insist that you always pay). You can see from the fact that my fonts are used in so many films that their quality is no less than that of other fonts. However, as the owner of all rights over these fonts, I give you the option of using them without paying.

If you are using the fonts for business purposes and your business model includes rewarding those who have invested in the intellectual property that you are using, then you might want to consider making a contribution towards the time, artistic and technological investment that I have made in these fonts as well as the ongoing costs of running and maintaining a production server 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, along with the other bills that go with that and so on.
