What is the Kompakt™ font?
Designed by Hermann Zapf and released by the Stempel type foundry in 1954, Kompakt is a heavy, almost roughly shaped display face.
One of the most famous and prolific type designers of the 20th century, Zapf is best-known for his very popular Palatino and Optima typefaces.

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