Christ Trek Fonts
Tim Larson (Christ Trek Fonts) is the Minnesota-based creator of the Open Font License fonts Marapfhont (2009, inspired by the logo font of the classic 1990s game Marathon) and Squarish Sans CT (2011, in Bank Gothic style). Both fonts are free and have tons of glyphs that cover many unicode pages, including mathematical symbols, Greek, Coptic and Hebrew. It is quite possible---but I am not sure of that--that this Bank Gothic family member is the only one that has such a coverage.
Tim is working on Brampton.
He writes about Squarish Sans: Squarish Sans is not a direct clone of any Bank Gothic. I have made conscious choices to deviate from existing designs. Yet it is strongly inspired by them, of course, particularly Michael Doret's DeLuxe Gothic, in that Squarish Sans has a true lower case as well as small caps. It should fit the bill should you have need of a Bank Gothic face.
Motivation for Marapfhont came from the Marathon Trilogy game: Remember the Marathon Trilogy by Bungie Games back in the mid-1990s? If you do, you remember it's iconic logo font, Modula Tall. There are no free alternatives to Modula Tall, and the few similar fonts miss important aspects of its character. I wanted to create a typeface inspired by the appearance of Modula Tall in Marathon. The lowercase of Modula Tall didn't fit the Marathon "feel" at all, for me, so I have redesigned the miniscules, to carry the signature look throughout. Thus, Marapfhont is not a clone of Modula Tall, but may nonetheless be used to generate the "MARATHON" title.
In 2013, he finished the pixelish typeface Looks Like Spht. In 2014, Tim Larson published the free Hebrew simulation font Hananiah (2014, OFL), which is based on Ezra SIL. It also includes regular Hebrew. In 2015, he published the German expressionist typeface Abibas [Abibas is a fork/extension of Gamaliel, a blackletter by Rafael Ferran i Peralta].
Istanbul-based graphic and type designer, music writer, radio programmer, DJ, and illustrator. He is currently working as an art director at Manajans/JWT İstanbul. He is also an MA student at Marmara University Institute of Fine Arts (Graphic Design Department).

American creator of these free fonts: the sci-fi typefaces ISL Sickness (2012, dot matrix face), ISL Flak (2012), AlphaBot (2012, inspired by Bionic Systems), Fade to Blak, Jupiter (2012, inspired by Mass Effect) and Andvari (2012, an octagonal typeface inspired by Planetside), the pixel typefaces VsNano (2012), Xen (2012), and Onyx (2012), and the hand-drawn typeface Villain (1998, adapted for two-coloring).
Calling himself a design tourist, German designer Henning Brehm makes fonts for films. His company in Berlin is also called Design Tourist. VLNL Agitka (2010-2020, 8 styles) contains Latin and Cyrillic characters, in a constructivist theme, and has a Neon sub-style that was used in the film Bourne Ultimatum. This family could originally be bought at Gestalten, but in 2020 the typeface was added to the Vette Letters collection.
Pandorum (2012, a spaceship typeface, by Henning Brehm and Alejandro Lecuna) was especially designed for film sets in the science fiction movie Pandorum starring Ben Foster, Antje Traue and Denis Quaid.
At Vette Letters, Henning Brehm created the squarish oriental simulation typeface VLNL Kimchi: The Kimchi font had its starting point in the making of the film Cloud Atlas, based on the novel by David Mitchell and directed by Lana & Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer. A first version of Kimchi was created for Papa Song---an underground fast food restaurant in a futuristic Neo Seoul in the year 2144. It was used for the menus, advertisement and packaging.
In 2021, he released VLNL Gindicate at Vette Letters. He explains: The alcoholic beverage Gin is drunk around the world, as far back as the 13th century. Originally distilled as a medicine, it draws its main flavour from juniper berries. Gin is colourless itself but a major ingredient in a long list of famous colourful cocktails. Gimlet, Singapore Sling, Negroni, Charlie Chaplin, French 75, Vesper, Tom Collins, White Lady, Aviation, Monkey Gland, Southside, Gin Gin Mule and New Orleans Fizz are but a few of them. That made us decide it simply cannot be missing from the Vette Letters font collection. Vette Letters designer Henning Brehm originally designed VLNL Gindicate for the 2015 action movie Hitman: Agent 47. It was specifically used for the logo and signage of the maverick Syndicate International organisation in the film. It lay dormant in a folder for a while, when it was reworked into this flashy 5 weight family. [Google] [MyFonts] [More] ⦿

The web site is now located at a charity, Shipbrook Hill Farm in Cheshire, UK. In the 1990s, it had a remarkable high-quality pair of freeware fonts, JSL-Ancient and JSL-AncientItalic. From Jeff's web page at the time: My most ambitious typographical achievement so far has been to re-create an antique roman/italic typeface pair, complete with ligatures and obsolete characters. Basing the fonts on nearly identical typefaces used by two English printers in the mid-to-late 1600s (Edward Jones and J. Redmayne), I strove to create as faithful a reproduction as I could manage. Using standard typeface classification terminology, it is a transitional or Baroque Oldstyle font. He also made JSL-Blackletter, Alien Nations, The Tenctonese Alphabet (a sci-fi face), and Tenctonese Sinescript.
