What is the ArchiType font?
With the famous and much used Eurostile and Bank Gothic in my mind I wanted to design a mono-line font as simple and legible as possible. A square with rounded corners, i.e., the letter ‘o’ as its basis. From there on back to basics, so straights remained simple straights with 90° endings, whatever the angle. Numbers are monospaced.
The result seems to be a pleasantly balanced and neutral font. Excellent for display purposes and surprisingly legible in even small sizes.
This perhaps typical approach by an architect led to the name of the font: ArchiType.

You're probably thinking - Is ArchiType available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. ArchiType is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of ArchiType, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for ArchiType and be done with it.
It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for ArchiType is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of ArchiType and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of ArchiType.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find ArchiType for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free ArchiType Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for ArchiType remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
