Lastwaerk - font by aajohan Lastwaerk - font by aajohan
Here we go :D
My second font: Lastwaerk. I've been working on this for over 8 months - I almost can't believe the number of hours I've spent on making this font. But I think (hope) it was worth it.

As you can see from the preview, Lastwaerk is a clean, legible sans serif font in 5 weights ranging from thin to black, each with an oblique type - they all take up the exact same amount of space. It has a total of 378 characters and symbols, all included in the preview.

Lastwaerk is completely free! Both for personal/non-commercial use, AND commercial use - and you don't have to give me credit when using it, but you are of course very welcome to do so if you want :)

Feel free to comment about anything you want! (critique too of course)
If you download it and like it, please fav it :D (but only if you like it!)

And that's it! I really hope you like it :)

EDIT: Huge thanks to :iconfantasystock: for featuring Lastwaerk as DD! And thanks for all the favorites and nice comments! :)

Feel free to see my design of my schools website which contains your font. I could even write everything in polish. The whole site will be probably working in the end of holiday.

Hi Johan, I just found your new font. Once again, Congratulations!!! Just one quick comment: In this font set the opening question mark (), which is used in languages like Spanish, is inverted. Is it possible to get that character in the right position?

Thank you!!!

Yes of course. I actually thought I only made that mistake in Comfortaa, but turns out I did it in all my fonts. Embarrassing...
I'll correct it as soon as possible :)

I've never installed a font before, do you know how i can add this to Photoshop Elements 8?

Installing the font on your computer should add it to all your programs using your computers fonts (like Photoshop Elements 8).
There is an installation guide in the download folder - but it's very easy no matter if you're on windows, mac or linux :)
If you've installed the font and it still doesn't show up in Photoshop, try restarting your computer, and if it still doesn't work try installing the font again :)

This font is amazing. I'm using it for my business logo, at [link] although this does bring up one question as far as the licensing. Does it count as a derivative to convert it to another format for web use? I used Font Squirrel ([link]) to convert it, but didn't do any other changes; it simply changed the format it was in (into an eot, woff, and svg version for different browsers).

It's a great font, exactly what I wanted for my logo-text; even the infinity symbol is just what I needed!

Technically it does count as a derivative (as far as I know), but that's totally fine. I've been meaning to change the font license to a fully open source one anyway. So no worries :)
Thanks again!

gothgeek84 Featured By Owner May 2, 2012
Good to know, and thanks for letting me use it. :) If you want the converted files, I can send them to you (or the links, they're hosted on my server after all). But again, they're just from a quick run-through with FontSquirrel.

Again, great font work. They all look good, but this is the first I've been able to use extensively. Although Comfortaa would go really well with Lastwaerk for subheadings and the like.

Also, the similarity in names between the font and my site/business is mostly just coincidence; I've had that name since '08, although the name of the font did help in deciding to use it for my needs, seemed to go together quite nicely.

Great! I already have the font in the other file types, but thanks for asking :)
And yea it's kind of a fun coincidence with the names :)
