The time-ravaged features, and haphazard baseline of the Hombre™ typeface gives it an ornery attitude. Drawn by Thomas Oldfield and loosely based on popular typefaces of the 19th century, Hombre is not, however, your typical western design with chunky slab serifs or heavy drop-shadows. Don’t typecast this font. The Hombre family is equally at home in projects that call for a versatile rough-and-tumble design, as it is for those that require an authentic old west flavor.

A guaranteed attention-getter, the Hombre family is perfect for ads, banners, headlines and subheads – in both hard copy and digital environments. Hombre melds a John Wayne swagger with an endearing charm. Looking for something rugged and a little quirky? The Hombre family may be just what you need.

Add to this, a large Western and Eastern European language character set that also includes Cyrillic and Greek, and you can bring the American old west to a herd of projects – both on screen and it print.
