stefan claudius, better known as phantompower has got a new font called "styroscript" and it can be downloaded here
i really dig the twisted style - go, see and download for yourself...
fontomas is formerly known as eyesaw - the site is still available, but it'll rest in peace.
like we did for over 2 years now fontomas offers typographic experiments, downloadable for free.
envolved in the process of generating fonts are designers from the uk, the netherlands, sweden, italy, usa and germany.
