Font Friday – Big Top

Circus posters are always a great source of inspiration for any graphic designer – they’re there to grab the attention in the most bold and colourful ways and the more fancy and outrageous they are, the cooler they look!

There are a lot of circus-inspired fonts available but one of my favourites is Big Top – and it’s free!


It’s a caps-only font, ideal for a bold headline, whether the circus is in town or not. I like the consistently positioned ‘ears’ on each of the characters that help tie the word/s together. Keep it short, sharp and in-your-face and this display font will be a great little performer for you!
