What is the Alarm font?

In the late 1920s the Trennert foundry in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, commissioned several fonts from freelancer Heinz König. His chunky, striking Alarm typeface and its blackletter-style companion, Wiking, are among the most remarkable display faces from that period, and were briefly quite successful across Germany. The 1928 Alarm was probably designed to compete with Berthold’s successful Fanfare from the previous year, drawn by Louis Oppenheim, but different in every detail. More…
Alarm has never known a serious digital version, until Fust & Friends decided to have a go, after collecting vintage specimens of the face, and doing some test printings with an authentic 72pt-size metal version. Our friend Andreas Seidel (principal of astype) did an exemplary job, homogenizing the character set without abandoning its quirkiness, expanding the character set with the usual contemporary symbols as well as diacritics for most languages that use the Latin alphabet, and adding mediaeval and tabular figures. An advertising classic is ready for a new life.

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that Alarm is not a free font.

You won't be able to find Alarm as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download Alarm HERE. You can find some other great options here on Jorgensen-fonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Alarm are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.

Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!

It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.

If you really want Alarm and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on MyFonts.com. Here you will be able to obtain the proper license. The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
