unfortunately accessibility to such a fantastic font comes at a price – perhaps try a freehand rendition :) hahahha just kidding

That is a really nice pack!! Thanks again for showing us some great design. One of my biggest problems as a graphic designer is to find good lettering, and I must say that this blog as been helping me in that!!

Love your work!!!

Horacio– you can check ScrapeTorrent for a file called “NiftyFonts” that has the basic Avant Garde fonts (lost among hundreds of other fonts, many of which didn’t work for me), but unfortunately those incredible alternate characters are nowhere to be found outside of the $119 pack you can find on google… :-(

Luis– that’s some nice work you have there on your blog!

Just use a free and nice Avant Garde font and make it your own in the great Adobe suite (Illustrator in this case).

The best works from Scott (in my oh so humble opinion) are those where he fooled around with a font, to make it his own.
Not only in the afterworks (Photoshop) but on the front stage, the shaping.

You still need a good starter font of course, but I believe a good lot of those free ones will work.
Great design is more about the idea and not about the money.
