Oilvare Font Family

Oilvare is a hand-drawn, layered typeface family inspired by vintage painted signs and oil cans. While sturdy, it also has a softer side—wide proportions, oval-inspired forms, curled angle strokes (see characters like the K and V), and a medium contrast all help give it a little bit of distinction from the typical sans serif genre. Mix, match, and layer the styles to your aesthetic liking. The separate highlight and shadow options really help the typeface come alive when colors are used, and there are also “rough” options for more texture. The subtle irregularities harken to hand lettering of the past.

Available for purchase at MyFonts, Fontspring, Creative Market, and YouWorkForThem. If you need custom font licensing, please contact me.
