Unpackaged Font of the Week

Unpackaged Open Font of the Week: Tiza

Tiza is a bold, chalkily-distressed Western-style slab font useful for headlines and other creative treatments. The font was created by Pablo Caro. It supports many accent marks in addition to the base ASCII set of characters. As Pablo notes on the Tiza page, this font was actually used as a design element for the 2008 Teen Choice Awards website! Tiza is licensed under the Open Font License.

And if you have any questions throughout the process, don’t hesitate to ask on the Fedora Fonts SIG mailing list:

Last week’s font

Last week’s font was Anonymous Pro by Mark Simonson. The font has been upgraded from the wishlist state to the in-progress state by Robin Sonefors, and has already passed package review. Great work, Robin!
