Fred Fredburger


The Fred Fredburger family was conceived when working for Monotype as a custom typeface for a children’s TV channel. Conceived to be fun, friendly and adventurous, Fred Fredburger is a distinctive family of five styles. The Headline versions are conceived to be visually striking and appealing to children, while the Roman, Bold and Condensed weights are a touch quieter in order to be comfortable to read at text sizes. All five styles are also designed to work harmoniously across five different scripts: Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew (designed by Alice Savoie) and Arabic (designed by Patrick Giasson).

Styles Headline Shadow, Headline Black, Bold, Roman, Condensed Character set Latin extended, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew
