Designed by Ingo Zimmerman, Fixogum is a grunge font published by ingoFonts.

A font from a tube; very decorative; makes you think of graffiti; written freely with a tube of “Fixogum.”

Who can remember the green tube which was never missing from the table of any graphic artist…? Fixogum is glue which is removable and leaves no traces since the remains can be rubbed away with your fingertips. It was used for gluing all layouts up until the introduction of Apple Macintosh. You could even play with it and with time, a considerable pile of eraser-like lumps accumulated. This green tube in the hand of the writer resulted in a roundabout way in the font with the same name, FIXOGUM.

The term ”capital typeface“ doesn’t seem quite fitting. FIXOGUM consists of capital letters only; yet, because the letters are bound to each other, even if in a peculiar way, a somewhat fluent font is still the result. The forms are archaic and express something of an original font.

This font is one-of-a-kind and thus, can’t be copied. FIXOGUM presents a pleasant structure. The lines appear to be closed and all in all, FIXOGUM resembles graffiti, which just might have to do with the writer’s past.

Font Family: Fixogum Regular
