OMG, look at that super goofy g! So fun!
My thoughts on Larrikin
What describes Larrikin best is the text on its website: “Larrikin is an Australian term meaning y mischievous young person, uncultivated, rowdy but good-hearted.” This free font (for personal use) by Polish type designer Kaja Slojewska shows a young typeface, standing out, being loud, with some letters behaving inappropriate – but so adorable for its quirkiness. I love the g, I love the slab-serifiness (yes, this is a word), blobbiness and goofiness about it!
It’s truly a display font, best used for short and large text. Bear in mind that the character set is still pretty limited, only covering English and Polish. Some punctuation marks are still missing too (like proper typographic quotes). But as the name says, Larrikin is still young, and maybe the character set will grow someday? If it does, hopefully without loosing this playfulness.
