About Agatized Informal Font Family

Agatized Informal is a rough-edged stencil typeface with chunky letterforms and tight spacing. Designed primarily for display use, it’s ideal for posters, logos, advertising, book cover designs or small chunks of text such as pull-out quotes.

The design is something of an enigma, a curious mish-mash of genres – imagine splicing Uncle Buck and Deadpool into a horror movie – it’s big, bold and funny although has a dark side.

But what really makes this typeface a joy to drive is its boot full of alternative characters and ligatures. There is a saying: Use sparingly. Not on this street! Make your Glyphs palette burn rubber. Set your OpenType to full throttle: crank up your style and get those liga-tyres screeching. Agatized is a souped-up old campervan spinning doughnuts on the beach.

The design started life as a piece of lettering for a book design that didn’t progress past the sketch stage. I liked the rough, dense character shapes, so during some down time I started drawing more characters and the lure of a new typeface pulled me in from there.

Although this is a single-weight typeface it has a younger sibling, Agatized Formal, a neater, more dapper brother, smoother round the chops and smartly dressed – certainly no less fun though.

About ULGA Type

ULGA Type is a small type foundry run by Michael Gills and based near Norfolk in the East of England. I design predominantly display fonts sprinkled with the occasional multi-weight typeface family (when time permits). ¶ My typeface families and fonts are generally characterised by designs that are well-crafted with a pinch of quirkiness, versatile and provide extensive European language support. For my display fonts, I try to inject some fun into the designs, adding lots of alternatives, ligatures and symbols . ¶ Alongside type design, my range of work encompasses monogram & logo designs, custom font designs, hand lettering and a bit of calligraphy.
