What is the Esca font?
Esca is a display typeface designed by Jim Ford with highly compressed proportions yet with a subtle calligraphic touch. This Lite version of the typeface was designed as part of a font marathon over the course of 3.5 days in Monotype’s NY office. The design started with the aim of fitting 4 letters onto one sheet of paper and the resulting typeface keeps that tight proportion.
The Esca design is mixed case and is ideally suited for logos, short headlines, and album covers. It has a great architectural feel to it that makes it suitable in signage applications and large scale settings. More…

You're probably thinking - Is Esca available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Esca 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 Esca, 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 Esca 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 Esca is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Esca and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Esca.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Esca for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Esca 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 Esca remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
