Three free typefaces
Die Gestalten Verlag (dgv) "specializes in developing content for aficionados of cutting-edge visual culture worldwide...".
Part of their service is type design, and they have made 3 complete typefaces available for free download.
Naiv-Fat is a deceptively legible 'under-exposed' rounded sans-serif.
Neon Glow is an intriguing neon-sans-outline-egyptian hybrid.
Regular Cargo-Bold is a condensed and readable sans-serif stencil.
There are also a couple of very attractive postmodern sans-serifs, Engel Light and Nuri Light. However, these are 'limited' sets, with no punctuation. Fine if you need a headline, not so good if you are intending to use them for body copy.
