The design of "Clock" started with numbers and arrows, which is usually not the case for general type design process. clock-oldgranny is the earliest version of CLOCK, no diacritics avaliable. Its apperance is playful but not so easy to play with. CLOCK-chichi is a pretentious version of CLOCK, just like its name — chichi "If you say that something is chichi, you mean that it is pretty or stylish, especially in a way that you consider affected. "

Not sure yet? Request a trial version of Clock

After more than two years of offering trial fonts, we have concluded that this initiative does not provide any tangible benefits. Our experience has shown a problematic lack of transparency in how people treat the trial fonts. As a small type foundry, we have very limited control over this situation. Individuals who download our trial fonts seldom engage with our follow-up communications, often lacking courtesy. Consequently, we have decided to discontinue offering trial fonts at NotYourType Foundry. This decision is final and will remain unchanged regardless of any inquiries or emails we receive.

However, you can still try the font by clicking on the "Text Editor" to type and experiment there. Please understand that as designers, our earnings from our experimental type design endeavors are minimal. The offering of trial fonts has only placed us in a more vulnerable position, with some individuals exploiting this generosity by using the fonts without purchasing the necessary licenses. This situation is disheartening, and as a result, we will no longer provide trial fonts.
