MFRED (2.0)

MFred was donated to BuyFontsSaveLives by designer Matt Willey in honour of his father Nick who was taken by cancer in 2011. MFred is a condensed caps-only headline face that also includes alternate versions of the G, K, M, R and W glyphs.

This much sought after headline font was originally drawn for ELEPHANT magazine, then subsequently used in Matt’s PORT magazine. It has also featured in the US edition of WIRED.

The original typeface was released with assistance from Henrik Kubel / A2-Type. MFred 2.0 has been extensively reworked for its release in 2021, with assistance from Diana Ovezea, now matching the weight count (Regular & Heavy) and character set of the companion MFred Rounded.

All BFSL typefaces sold will raise much needed funds for Cancer Research & MacMillan Cancer Support; your purchase could literally save lives. Thank you.
