freeWave is a remixed sub-set of Libre Baskerville Bold cut with a horizontal wavy texture! It's probably best used as a display font, e.g. in large headings.

Sub-set?

freeWave is a sub-set of Libre Baskerville Bold containing all the characters for basic English text: A to Z in upper- and lower-case, the numerals 1 to 9 and 0, and some basic punctuation.

What's the license?

SIL Open Font License v1.1 (SIL OFL v1.1). You can freely use this font in personal and/or commercial works with or without crediting me

How was this made?

I made this typeface using Affinity Designer, Calligraphr, and Glyphs:

  1. Affinity Designer to fill out the Calligraphr template with the Libre Baskerville letters and a wave texture,
  2. Calligraphr to convert the resulting image to a font file, and
  3. Glyphs to tidy it up a little and add back in Libre Baskerville's kerning pairs.

freeWave was made as part of FontJam, as a demo of using Calligraphr to draw a font digitally (or, in this case, edit an existing font with a license that allows modification).
