Unpackaged Font of the Week

Unpackaged Open Font of the Week: Chunk

Chunk is a fun slab serif decorative font that is useful for headlines and other creative treaments. The font was created by Meredith Mandel – check out Meredith’s Chunk type specimen poster for an idea of the type of treatments this font can shine in.

Chunk is licensed under the Open Font License.

So, you want to package Chunk?

Fantastic! You rock! You’ll want to follow the first steps here next to the ‘if you intend to do some packaging’ header:

Our fonts packaging policy, which the above refers to, is documented here:

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 Comic Serif Pro by Hannes von Döhren. Nobody has picked up the font package request yet! Would you like to?

  1. That looks like a serif font to me. sans means without. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serif

    • Copy/paste error. Thanks for pointing it out it should be fixed now. I well know the difference between sans serif and serif, but thanks for pointing out the resource for others who might be curious.

  2. You absolutely rock for what you are doing – many thanx.
    If possible could you point the characters covered by the fonts.
    I know this is additional burden on you and will not insist further if do not list that information in the future.
    Still – many thanx for the initiative.
    Kind regards:

    • Hi Al! The weekly feature is already a draw on my time, I wish I had the time to be way more thorough in documenting the coverage of the fonts but I don’t really think I have the time. If you do or know someone who is interested though let me know as I’d be happy to work with them.

  3. After seeing the name, I was really hoping the font had some relation to The Goonies.. 🙂
