While you're waiting for me to complete the Caprica project, here's an incomplete, but still completely usable, release of my NEXT typeface, Gayatri.
Like Caprica, it's based on a type used in the recently-ended-or-is-it Battlestar Galactica. Most caps and numbers are taken from signs on display in, on and around the Galactica itself, while a few are completely new, and all other letterforms, lower case characters and punctuation, have been birthed in the pink soup that is my brain.
The font metrics are completely set, but many advanced characters are missing, and I have not applied any hinting as yet.
Stock used for specimen:
RULES OF USE:
Free for dA and non-commercial use.
Please credit me and send me a link to your work.
If you're considering using the font for commercial work (i.e. work from which you intend to profit, directly or indirectly), drop me a line and we can discuss a licence.
Enjoy, and let me know of all your successes and any problems you might come across.
