WalkOn - Free Font by Hanson Chan

“Walk-On” was originally created as a corporate typeface for the Fashion brand Wang & Lynch. It takes its inspiration from the eras of Art Deco and Art Nouveau but with a radically contemporary approach. This retro font boasts simple shapes and reduced ornamental structures, yet still yielding an overall art deco -influenced look and feel. Ideal for headlines, Walk-On can also be utilized for editorial copy due to a vast array of alternate letterforms, numerals, and initials, giving the user multiple options for flexible and exciting text design. Read on and enjoy!

As i am a huge Liverpool FC fan I would love to find a way to relate my work to Liverpool FC. In the Liverpool’s Anthem there’s a line in the lyric say “Walk on~With hope in your heart~And you’ll never walk alone”, therefore i took out the word - "WalkOn" as the name of the font, dedicated the typeface to my beloved football club. I used illustrate and FontLab for this project. And I made tons of revisions I cannot remember. Less than 10, I suppose.

  1. WalkOn is listed in a number of several places --- including this site --- as a "free font". But nowhere is there a link to download it, free or not. Can you help ?
