Vagebond was designed by René Verkaart and published by Characters Font Foundry. Vagebond contains 4 styles and family package options.  

Vagebond is a monoline family in three widths, Condensed (C), Normal (N), and Extended (XT). With Vagebond I was inspired by a very old television I once saw on a junkyard. I wanted to create a typeface with round edges that would fit within the 4 x 3 proportion of the screen. It had to be monoline, because that gives it a very simplistic and minimalistic look.

Having created the XT width I felt it needed the both complementing widths to make it complete.

The Condensed version, for me, is the funky rounded version of the DIN. I love DIN, but it sometimes feels just a bit to 'normed' for me. Vagebond C brings in a bit more personality.

Although Vagebond looks kinda 'oldstyle', it works very well in futuristic designs. It feels best in combination with a super futuristic 3d object.

Font Family:
· Vagebond C Light Roman
· Vagebond N Light Roman
· Vagebond XT Light Roman
· Vagebond XT Light Italic
