DM Unarmed was designed by Drew Maughan and published by DM Founts. DM Unarmed includes 1 style. p > Unarmed started life as a series of rectangles in Fireworks. The job was developing my own company card for the first time in years, and the perfect lettering couldn't be found in either free or commercial typefaces.

While there were some good options, none of them actually communicated who I was. Initially just the lowercase letters in my name were produced, with each being developed around a 7 x 4 grid of squares. I liked the result a lot that I wished to utilize the same typeface in different jobs - and to save time in future, I chose to create this font.

In creating DM Unarmed, the intent was to prevent diagonal lines, and to keep all the lines horizontal, vertical and grid-like. This made creating some of the characters - especially the rounded ones and the letters X and Z - challenging. Coming from both worlds, I wished to attain a blend of technicality and creativity, without attempting to pretend one was the other.

For finest outcomes this typeface need to be used for big and popular text, although it works at smaller sizes up to 12pt. I've spent a great deal of time trying to hint a few characters that would not play ball, such as 2, 7 and 8.

In case you're wondering: DM Unarmed got its name from my approach of dealing with difficulties without dependence on tools and weapons.
