-Check out my three other fonts: Montepetrum: fav.me/d2if3uu Lastwaerk: aajohan.deviantart.com/art/Las… and Trunkmill: aajohan.deviantart.com/art/Tru… -
Comfortaa is a simple, good looking, true type font with large number of different characters and symbols. You can see most of them in the preview.
It is absolutely free, both for personal and commercial use.
It is licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1 - For most uses, you don't have to worry about this at all as it is a license with very few restrictions, but you can always read the license file (OFL.txt) included in the download folder if you want.
You don't have to give me credit if you use it in your work, but you are very welcome to do so if you want.
If you download it and like it please fav it (but obviously only if you like it). You are also more than welcome to comment about anything you want (I'm open to critique)
I hope you will enjoy using my font!
I obviously would love to see how my font is being used, so feel free to comment with a link to your work, or send me a message
v3: Comfortaa has been improved as part of the Google Font Improvements Project. This includes minor or major changes to all characters and support for vietnamese.
Cirylic character set added!
Note that the font license has been changed to a less strict one.
Version 2.000 Released! All characters (yes all) have been redone / re-thought at a higher quality. Especially people using Comfortaa at large sizes will appreciate this. Spacing and kerning has also been re-thought. Some characters have changed more than others - you may notice changes to especially "s" and "f". The Cyrillic character set has also been greatly improved. Overall the quality of the font has just gone up a notch

I found the starting point of "C" and "G" in a capital letter looks a little bit weird?
I checked the "c" in a small letter.
The starting point is different with a capital letter.
My English is terrible.
Please excuse me.
And thanks a lot for your work!
Your font is absolutely wonderful. Why does it not surprise me that you are Danish? I'm trying to decide on new fonts with my designer for the new website which will be seen in 120 countries (according to current statistics) so it is doubly fascinating. Also challenging, since I have been told that readers who haven't specifically loaded your typeface will get a "close" ersatz. Uhoh!
I adore writing from the human hand, having grown up with perfectly scripted postcards from my Dad. I was marked down in my English schools for fooling around with my letters too much. One aspect makes me curious about your font... the specific reason you chose not to curve the tail of the "y" the way you do the "g". To me it's the only anomaly.
I hope we find a way to use your magnificent artistry or should I say calligraphy?
Be well, cheers, Garry
Thank you very much!
If you use Comfortaa on your website using the Google Fonts Service it shouldn't matter if readers have installed the font or not.
As for the "y" I personally think it makes great sense to give it a relatively "sharp" appearance. Semantically I closely relate x, y, z, v, w and wanted to give them a similar "sharp" feeling. I think, making a typeface, is a balance between making letters look alike and in the same style, while keeping them clearly distinguishable and different. Making a few quirky details also helps give the font a bit of soul I think
Also that's just the way I have always written y's haha
Thank you very much for this font. It is wonderfully clear and precise. I have changed my default settings to Comfortaa. It makes all the correspondence more impressive. Thank you once again and happy creating on your future projects. Philip
PS: It would be lovely if you could create the 'Indian Rupee symbol'. It is very difficult to get a decent one. Once again warmest regards from a hot and distant India!
Also, does comfortaa have a monospace variant (with fixed width for all characters)? I've been seriously considering using this for my text editor but the variable width makes it a little hard to read because of all the periods and semicolons.
Thanks for a great work a lot!
thank you so so much
Thanks for your input! I did however put thought (believe it or not) into every character - the comma too. So if I thought it should be smaller I would have made it that way.
Good news is the font is open source so you are more than welcome to make a custom version of it with a smaller comma
The version on Google Fonts (v3.001) is the latest one - and is actually the same as on here, I just haven't updated the preview.
It's true that the lowercase s has changed quite a bit from version 2 to 3 - mainly to improve legibility and make the font more universal.
