New Sharasfonts web site in progress

Hi there! It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I had some issues with my ISP and as a result, I will be migrating to a different platform, hopefully by the end of this year. Please just bear with me! All my fonts are available for testing and downloading at fontspace.com. If you have any questions or concerns or comments, please feel free to contact me through this page. Have a terrific Thanksgiving!

GelPen font used on snack food packaging!

While browsing in Whole Foods tonight, I was super surprised to find this line of @YumEarth snacks that use GelPen on their packaging. A big shout out to Yum Earth for their fun designs. I think they did a great job with their package design. The color schemes are playful and fun, and I especially like the little happy faces drawn on the fruits too!!

GPU Pro font only $5 with coupon code “FONTBLOG”

Introducing an expanded version of my free GelPen Upright. GPU Pro contains west and east European glyphs as well as Latin.  It’s 50% off for a limited time, only $5 with the coupon code “FONTBLOG”. The free version is free to download on sharasfonts.com and is limited to basic latin characters. Both the free and expanded versions work well for captions, comics, cartoons and small text. It was even spotted on Real Time with Bill Maher! Have a great weekend!!

 

KaoriGel-カオリゲル

Good morning and happy Sunday! How about another free font download? It’s a handwritten Japanese (katakana and hiragana) and Latin typeface called KaoriGel. Named after and inspired by my dear friend from Chiba, Japan, this typeface is part of my GelPen series and was one of my first fonts. The Japanese characters are hiragana and katakana only. Sorry about the lack of kanji, but my Japanese is rather limited at this time. If you only use or need Latin characters this simple typeface would also be useful for captions and body text. You can download KaoriGel for free right here!

Light Painting

Hi there! I have been taking a little break from fonts as I have been into light painting with my camera. I love abstract patterns and colorful lights and have been having fun experimenting. There are more light paintings at fineartamerica.com so if you feel like browsing some interesting colors and textures please feel free to stop by! 🙂

Toner Incident

When something as mundane as a laser printer acting weird inspires a font, I start to wonder if I’m running out of ideas… Anyway, Toner Incident is free. A free messy, blotchy, distressed, and eroded font. But it’s fun!

SpiroFace

Remember Spirograph? Do they still make that anymore or am I dating myself? Anyway, for those of you that remember Spirograph and for those of you who don’t, but still like geometric swirly kind of shapes, then this font is for you! A free download waiting for you at sharasfonts.com.

GelPen

Hello there! This time I’d like to post my first font, created in 2012. It’s a handwriting font called GelPen. Since I really like writing on black paper with fluorescent and pastel gel pens it wasn’t too difficult to come up with this name. It’s probably not going into the font hall of fame but I think it has worked well in various applications I’ve seen it used in over the years, such as keyboard apps for phones, videos, whiteboard apps, comics, and business apps. I have really enjoyed seeing what people have done with this!

GelPen comes in three weights and is free to download. If you use any of my fonts for your projects, please feel free to let me know so I can give you a shout out on my Pinterest board!

Cameron Sans family

Hi there! This is Cameron Sans, a rounded sans-serif font. Very legible for body text and captions. There are eight fonts in this family and they can be downloaded at sharasfonts.com. Yours free!

Olives in Cyrillic!

An addition to the Olives family, Olives sans Pimiento International version is available for purchase. This typeface contains extended character sets and accented glyphs and is my first foray into Cyrillic. If you are looking for a fun font for a Russian project, look no longer!
