Kelava wanted to create his own Art Deco font without being too much of a copycat. The result was this bold and daring typeface, perfect for catching your user’s eye.
It only comes as capital letters, so it won’t be relevant for set body text. It does however, look amazing on a poster or homepage!

This was the first font listed on http://www.wprazzi.com list of 125+ list of Free Typefaces. I found it quite classic in it’s simplicity. I presume it is designed by a student designer, as it is on a portfolio site. I would use it for headline only. Speakeasy is a newly designed font in Ai by Marcus Williamson on behance.net. The OTF version is to be released soon. If you happen to use it or see it used, Marcus only asks you to post a link to the project on the download site.

Found on behance.net, this beautiful oldfashioned yet modern face was designed by Victor Tognolo. Valk Display Font was a project for his Lettering and Type Design Course in Instututo Europeu de Design de São Paulo. Inspired by Uppercase Square Font, what he has done in my opinion is brilliant! It feels like an old fashioned display advertising Letterpress typeface!
Found on wprazzi.com, Pilaca is a free display font designed by Pier Paolo. It is quite powerful in 3d applications, and has a blocky 70′s or possibly 80′s type vibe to it.
