What is the DF Pigtail™ font?
DF Pigtail is the result of a curious marriage of the ‘free’-form of writing with the fixed (mono) space for each character of the typewriter typeface.
In the early sixties of the last century, typewriter typography became popular as a Fluxus vocabulary. The Fluxus art movement (in fact a Dada like follow up) which encouraged a do it yourself aesthetic, and valued simplicity over complexity and anti commercialism over the conventional market-driven approach. I was educated in the mid seventies when this form of typography was still very popular and was even applied in corporate design. This particular letter has been used by my teacher Jan Begeer to compose his design assignments. More…
Recently I rediscovered this type and was struck by its pigtail similarity and drew it my way.

Most fonts on Jorgensen-Fonts.com are premium, which means that DF Pigtail™ is not a free font.
You won't be able to find DF Pigtail™ as a free download, so I suggest that you just go ahead and pay for it and download DF Pigtail™ 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 DF Pigtail™ 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.
