What is the Rotor font?

Rotor is a speedy font.
In 1929 K. Sommer designed a typeface for Linotype called “Vulcan”. Some years later they republished the typeface and called it Dynamo.
The early Vulcan design inspired me to do this new, faster typeface in two different “speeds”, meaning I gave the design two opposing slants on the slab-serifs. In order to make it more useful I drew two sets of each “speed”, one with the white speedtraces and one without. More…
And of course I did give it an allover new look, but still kept it a very art deco kind of typeface.

You're probably thinking - Is Rotor available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Rotor 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 Rotor, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Rotor is that you get the license to use it leagally.
