The heavy ROBUST font by Gallo

Robust display font not for text Display Robust is a display font not intended for text use, and not for the faint at heart. It was designed specifically for display, headline, logotype, branding, and similar applications. It has some characters that blend well together, and you'll find the straight vertical strokes and 45-degree angles are perfect for modifications as outlines in Illustrator. It's rather ugly -- and heavy handed, but works well at very small sizes on the monitor, as seen at right. Reserve Display Robust to send a heavy, masculine message.

Display Robust has an uppercase alphabet, numbers, and punctuation, along with a PDF file showing the full set. It's a PostScript Type 1 font with screen and printer fonts
