To celebrate this year’s National Newspaper Week, News Media Canada has created a custom font entitled, “Champions”, available to download for free. Click the box to the right to download the font zip file (including an FAQ and installation instructions).
Designed with both print and digital platforms in mind the Champions font honours newspapers’ history while looking forward to a bright and multi-platformed future.
Inspired by the essential service that newspapers provide, the Champions font highlights the power of words and the people behind the newspapers who use them to communicate essential information to Canadians each and every day. These real-life news superheroes keep our democracy thriving through a vibrant and independent news media.
Champions is a geo-humanist font that incorporates both humanistic traits — which mimic hand motions reflecting the craft and artistry that goes into producing credible news each day — and highly geometric shapes — which represent the structure and rigour of fact-checking, editing, and producing high-quality credible content newspapers are known for.
