Extended information

Gidole is a beautiful mountain town in southern Ethiopia and Gidolinya is the language spoken by the people living there. I lived there as a child - hence the names and why I have chosen to channel any potential goodwill from this hobby project to donations to the Ethiopian Red Cross Society (ERCS).

The typefaces Gidole and Gidolinya are inspired by the classic DIN #1451. The letters are drawn with Euler spirals using circles as guidelines. This gives them a minimal look with the smoothest curves and curve to tangent transitions possible.

This font is open source. Help me by reporting issues - issues can be anything from errors, to suggestions, to requests, etc. You can contribute directly by forking and creating pull requests. FontForge is a free font editor and I've also saved UFO versions.

I'll post major updates on Twitter where you can also contact me with questions. You can find more info on gidole.github.io . Let me know if you're using this font - I'd love to see it! A mention somewhere in your product isn't needed but much appreciated.

PREAMBLE
The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide

redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The
fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded,
redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved
names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives,
however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply
to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.
